State Pushing For Nursing Home Hidden Cameras To Reduce Abuse

A state lawmaker is fighting to pass a law allowing cameras in nursing home patient rooms. He believes it will reduce the abuse that he is convinced still occurs in nursing home facilities. Addressing concerns of privacy, a family member says anyone against the camera in a nursing home must have something to hide. She is convinced that had a camera been installed in her husband’s room he would still be alive.

Although his death was in 2010, she is still grieving his death spurred by the time she visited him and found him in a room of 90 degrees with no air turned running. Her husband as a nursing home patient was sent to the hospital with bed sores and severe dehydration, requiring a blood transfusion. For more, read the story.
