Ohio Allows Cameras

The Ohio Senate passed a bipartisan bill that allows cameras in resident’s rooms to prevent abuse and neglect. This is a big win for safety and deterrence. Ohio received more than 19,000 reports of elder abuse, neglect and exploitation in 2018. Abuse and neglect are worse now.

The bill named for Esther allows a resident’s family to put up cameras trained on that resident with permission from any roommates.

It is ridiculous that residents still need to share rooms. How is that proper infection control?
