Some Urge Ban On Cell Phones For Nursing Home Employees

Increasingly, nursing home employees are being cited for abuse against nursing home residents with incidents involving use of the employees' cellular telephones. Some are now calling for restrictions on employee cell phone use at such facilities.

In at least one matter, a state's inspector general's office was asked to investigate a nursing home after reports staff members used cell phone cameras to take pictures of the residents and attach sexually explicit lyrics to those photos.

Those pictures were then sent to other employees.
