I am working on my levels of privacy and haven't gotten the passport yet, and should have discussed this privacy invasion with someone there at the hospital. But just thought I'd let others know of a potential situation where you'd be asked to identify yourself and they keep copy of your ID. Maybe tomorrow I'll get into the situation with the hospital and ask them what happens if someone doesn't have ID or such, how long they keep the copy of DL, and other privacy related questions.

Perhaps larger hospitals have stricter rules.
