    A guideline is not a law.
    It seems to me that some people are creating their own versions of these guidelines.
    AFAIK, there is NO such protected zone around a hospital.
    If this uav pilot could not see the manned helicopter, then he was most likely using goggles.
    And no, you do not have to notify anyone you're flying in the area.

    Which goes to prove that these people who are enforcing the laws, don't know these laws do not exist.
