Hospital sued for privacy invasion after staff take photo of unconscious patient's private parts

As reported by Reuters, a displeased patient has filed a lawsuit against a Denver hospital after staff took a picture of his genitalia while he lay unconscious in the emergency treatment room.

35 year old Gergory Bradford was being treated for a cracked skull when hospital workers decided - for reasons best known to themselves - to expose his private parts and take a photo with his own digital camera.

Clearly this was an unwelcome invasion of Mr Bradford's privacy though he has got a memento - and evidence - from his ordeal.
