WNED news recently reported that hidden cameras are being installed in certain, unidentified nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities to crack down on patient abuse and neglect.
The video surveillance technology has been employed quite successfully in many nursing home and rehabilittion facilities, resulting in nearly 30 convictions for endangering patients’ health and falsifying records to conceal neglect.
Cases of neglect, often difficult to prove, can now be proven thanks to this video surveillance technology.
The video monitoring is a new technoligy which is monitored in real time thereby providing additional much needed protetion to seniors confined to nursing homes.
If you or a loved one are in search of a nursing home or rehabilitation facility, you might want to inquire whether the nursing home or rehab facility employs this new technology.
