HIDDEN CAMERAS IN NURSING HOMES: THREE CHEERS FOR AG CUOMO

We have written several blogs over the years about the use of hidden cameras in nursing homes(most recently on Thursday, October 18). I believe that, if set up correctly to protect the privacy of roommates, hidden cameras are a great idea! They are a strong deterrent against nursing home abuse.

And now it appears that New York Attorney General, Andrew Cuomo, agrees. Cuomo is expanding his practice of installing hidden cameras in nursing homes to deter abuse. The Attorney General already has used hidden-camera footage taken at nursing homes in Rochester to prosecute staff members for abuse and neglect.

I live in Virginia so…how about it Attorney General Bob McDonnell?
