Chicago, IL-Families and state inspectors who suspect misdeeds such as abuse or petty thievery in a nursing home will take steps to see what is actually going on behind the closed doors of a residents room by using a “ granny cam.” Those “granny cams” can be a great help by exposing abuse and neglect, but some people are critical of their use and say that they actually erode trust between health care workers and their charges.Those who advocated for the rights of residents in long-term care facilities say these cameras are their best line of defense in preventing neglect, abuse and theft.But those who advocate for health care workers say that these cameras are an invasion of the worker’s privacy along with the resident’s other guests and visitors.They are also concerned that “granny cams” also cause the actions of caregivers to be misinterpreted and therefor they could be wrongfully accused of abuse or neglect.One would shove rubber gloves in her mouth and another violently tossed her into her bed.Mayberry’s caregivers subjected her to a list of abuses all of which were caught on camera.
Shocked by the treatment of Mayberry; lawmakers Oklahoma recently passed a law which allows families and state investigators to install cameras in the rooms of nursing home residents.
They became the third state to pass such a law after Texas and New Mexico and five other states have contemplated similar legislation.
These “granny cams” are often concealed in objects such as stuffed animals, walls clocks and alarm clocks.
A person can easily get a hold of these cameras at a spy store or online and the acts they capture can be shocking.
Take for instance the case of Eryetha Mayberry, a 96 year-old woman suffering from dementia who was living at a nursing home in Oklahoma City.
When her daughter put a “granny cam” in her room, they discovered that she was being abused by her caregivers.
