Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., Zagari & Associates, and Charlton Law Offices File Class Action Suit Against West Penn Hospital

Former Hospital Employee Secretly Filmed Patients and Coworkers Undressing

Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., Zagari & Associates, and Charlton Law Offices have filed a class action suit against West Penn Allegheny Health System, Inc., which operates under the name “Western Pennsylvania Hospital,” over the misconduct of a former hospital employee, as reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The former employee, Guy Caley, was charged two weeks ago over 80 times after investigators first discovered that he used secret, hidden cameras to film patients and coworkers undressing in hospital rooms and bathrooms without their consent.

In total, Caley filmed 34 female patients and 21 female medical professionals. Many of the patients are believed to be cancer patients. Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C. stands by their view that this conduct is reprehensible and should have been discovered much sooner than it was. Our firm argues that the hospital had a responsibility to manage its employees better and that hospital rooms should have been screened to ensure no illegal cameras were present.

Thus, Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., alongside Zagari & Associates, P.C. and Charlton Law, will represent the plaintiffs against West Penn Hospital in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The plaintiffs seek justice on three counts:

  • Invasion of privacy - Intrusion upon seclusion
  • Intentional infliction of emotional distress
  • Negligence
