As a father of an active toddler, I am well versed in the importance of keeping close tabs on him at all times. We keep a video monitor on him to make sure he doesn’t harm himself. Video monitoring has even gone to the streets in Chicago where police can monitor street traffic in crime ridden areas.
The time has come for monitoring to take the jump to nursing homes. “Granny Cams” as Attorney David Terry describes in the Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Blog would be an important part of protecting our nursing home residents from nursing home abuse from nursing home employees and co-residents.
While cameras have caught abusive workers in the act, utilizing video technology as a regular part of nursing home care seems the a reasonable thing to do. I join David’s endorsement of installing ‘granny cams’ to safeguard nursing home residents.
Hey David, can I get a cut of Granny Cam’s royalties?
