Canadian plastic surgeons are accused of recording patients without their consent

A Canadian plastic surgeon is accused of filming thousands of patients exposed at a Toronto clinic without their consent, according to the report.

Martin Jugenburg, 45, who calls himself “Dr. 6ix, “allegedly filmed patients in a two-story clinic at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto and posted several pictures online, The National Post reported, citing a panel of disciplines.

The panel accused Jugenburg, among other things, of allowing film crews to record breast enlargement operations, against the wishes of patients.

“About this case is about repeated violations of Dr. Jugenburg about the privacy of his patients, repeated violations of the confidentiality of his patients, “Carolyn Silver, a lawyer representing the regulator, told the panel. “And this violation by Dr. Jugenburg involved not only his own patients, but many other patients who were seen in his office in downtown Toronto by other doctors that he allowed to use his office space.”

Jugenburg’s lawyer told the panel on Wednesday that his clinic claimed to have made a professional mistake but denied other allegations against it.

He said he would never allow a TV film crew to do an operation if he knew the patient did not approve of it.

“I understand he agreed to have a crew in operation, but only for filming,” Jugenburg said Toronto Sun. “There was no written agreement and come to think of it, that was something I should have done.”

Allegations against Jugenburg said there were 24 cameras installed throughout the clinic in early 2017. A document from the disciplinary panel said two signs – one in the lobby and another in the operating room – told patients about the camera, even though one was not seen.

“There are no signs that tell patients that they are recorded during their patients’ meetings, consultations, and / or procedures. [Jugenburg] nor did it inform the patient that this recording could be accessed by him on his cellphone “through an application, he said.

Records obtained by regulators show “breasts, buttocks and genitals,” according to the document.

Jugenburg sent an email to his patients in 2018, explaining that the camera was for “security purposes,” and apologized for not making them visible, The National Post reports.

The regulator ordered Jugenburg last year to remove all cameras from the area where the patient will be exposed.

The Jugenburg trial is scheduled to last until July.

September is a very important and visible month for deaf people, with three dates that raise awareness and celebrate achievements that are part of the entire community’s trajectory and struggle. These are: – International Sign Language Day, September 23; – Day of the Deaf, 26 September; and Libra National Interpreter and Translator Day on September 30th. With a focus on the deaf community, the Department of Education is promoting several initiatives in this area.

The first is aimed at changing the scenario of educational and language policy based only on the inclusive perspective of including a deaf student in the school environment without guaranteeing procedures that enhance accessibility in his education. The National Guidelines for Bilingual Education for the Deaf integrate all stages of basic education and are based on the promotion of bilingual curricula and pedagogical practices for the deaf: Brazilian Sign Language (Libras) and written Portuguese.

Through the Department of Special Education, the MEC coordinates with interested municipalities the construction, renovation or expansion of bilingual schools for the deaf. To date, 11 locations in Brazil have shown interest in the project. To complement this phase, the Libras National Textbook Program (PNLD) provides accessible formats to deaf students and public school teachers of basic education in the country.

In the academic world, in partnership with universities, advanced training courses are offered for teachers, managers and professionals who want to work with bilingual education for the deaf. Thanks to the projects of various institutions, there are currently 3,520 vacancies for teaching the deaf.

Sarah’s complaint comes after the league filed a complaint against a Manchester United player for aggression against Jake in the Manchester team’s match against Everton on April 9 last season in the Premier League. After an unsuccessful result, the Portuguese dropped a fan’s mobile phone on the way to the locker room.

According to Sarah, she and her son once again became victims of offenses in social networks after the announcement of the complaint against the attacker.

“People are following me, saying that I am rebelling again, but I didn’t know anything about it. The case should have been heard six months ago. My son talks every day about what happened to him. He still hasn’t returned his phone,” he said.

Marseille in California.  ″Where the Portuguese is, there is Portugal″

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
