Hospital worker facing 83 new charges after secretly recording patients, employees in imaging room

A former West Penn Hospital worker is looking at 83 new charges after an investigation found he secretly recorded a number of coworkers and patients while they were in an imaging room.

A criminal report filed Wednesday against Guy Caley, 52, indicated at least 21 workers and 34 patients were recorded, reported Thursday. Nearly all of them were done using cameras in the Allegheny Health Network hospital’s MRI room. All individuals were women, with some footage showing Caley placing the cameras.

“The majority of the videos appeared to follow two distinctive patterns: to capture hospital employees using the bathroom toilet, and to capture nude or partially nude female patients while in an imaging room within the radiology department,” the Pittsburgh news outlet reported.

Charges were first brought against Caley in July after it was discovered he recorded five hospital employees using a small camera facing a toilet in a unisex bathroom. Caley told police he had done the same thing many times before, taking the camera home and downloading the videos.

Allegheny Health Network issued a statement Thursday regarding the situation:

The allegations described in these criminal charges against a former West Penn Hospital employee are appalling, and West Penn condemns his actions in the strongest possible terms.”
