It's not clear yet whether Pennsylvania will become the fifth state to adopt rules or laws prohibiting or allowing private video recording or surveillance in nursing homes. But one Philadelphia nursing home's struggle to deal with the technology created a storm of controversy recently.
I know there are state-specific laws, but what can we do generally to keep "granny cams" out of our facility? Seems like the movement to use them is growing.
California may allow some form of videotaping in assisted living facilities, following mounting pressures from concerned families and positive outcomes from an Orange County facility that installed the devices years ago.
With another summer of huge movies nearly behind us, it's a good time for providers to exhale in relief. Or wonder anxiously if they have been on camera themselves. Especially if Mike DeWine would be the film's producer.
