BALTIMORE (February 27, 2013)--A Johns Hopkins Hospital gynecologist who secretly shot video of patients wore a pen around his neck that may have been used to conceal a camera, an employee told officials.
The employee told hospital officials of her suspicions on Feb. 4, according to a letter from the hospital's CEO, Dr. Paul B. Rothman dated Tuesday.
The report led to the discovery that Dr. Nikita Levy, 54, had been recording video of patients during exams at a Hopkins clinic.
Levy killed himself on Feb. 18 in his home, police said.
Investigators have said they have found large amounts of multimedia evidence.
More than 2,000 patients and former patients of Levy have called a hotline set up by the hospital, police said.
Class-action lawsuits have been filed against Hopkins stemming from the incidents.
