'Tis a poser

So, FoIB Holly R sent this along:

"Every NICU bed at this hospital is equipped with a webcam so parents can always check on their babies."


I replied:

"I like that!

Although: I guess there could be privacy issues?

Parents can stream the live feed to their phone or other device. The story doesn't say whether or not the feeds are monitored at the hospital, but one presumes this would be the case.

My concern is that with the spate of hospitals and medical equipment hacking, is there a legitimate concern about this from the parents' perspective?

Whaddaya think?
