SCHENECTADY – Police arrest a nurse at Ellis Hospital after investigating illegal surveillance at the facility.

Paul Bourdeau, of Schenectady, is charged with unlawful surveillance.

The 45-year-old is accused of hiding a miniature camera inside an employee bathroom of the ‘E’ Wing on the first floor.

Another employee found the recording device and turned it over to the hospital’s administration.

Police say the camera was in the bathroom for at least a week.

Bourdeau was arraigned Tuesday morning and released on bail.
