More On Video Surveillance and Chronic Pain
A regular reader of this blog shared some views with me recently and I thought these were worth repeating. These relate to chronic pain complaints and the value, if any, of video surveillance. Specifically the reader shared the following thoughtful observation:
This Fall we will again be watching hockey on tv [ video evidence ] Can you tell me which player[s] are playing hurt ? And trust me …. they are …. some very much. We often know this at the end of the year …. as teams ” hide ” or deny that certain players are hurt … in that the opposing players do not focus on and target their injuries. Video tapes ? I don’t trust them
What do you say? Is there value to video surveillance? Does it effectively weed out fraudulent claims or is it an unnecessary invasion of privacy?
