Care home staff supports the use of CCTV, report reveals

Comments Off on Care home staff supports the use of CCTV, report reveals

An overwhelming majority of care home staff would support the use of CCTV in an attempt to stamp out care home abuse and neglect, a recent survey carried out by HC-One was able to reveal.

Over 12,000 residents, their relatives and care home staff took part in the survey which found that 68% of all respondents were in favour of introducing visible cameras in care homes.

There are concerns surrounding privacy and who has access to the footage while HC-One’s chairman, Dr Chai Patel commented that: ‘The results of this consultation are vitally important in initiating an industry-wide debate on the matter. The potential implementation of an opt-in, visible camera scheme is a very serious issue and one for the whole sector to debate in depth.

We welcome regulators, stakeholders and other interested bodies to share their opinions and ensure that our loved-ones up and down the country receive the kindest care.’
