CCTV in residential aged care

Back in April of this year ACMA hosted an open forum to discuss the issues surrounding the use of CCTV in residents rooms. Over the past few months, there has been more and more evidence of residents being injured / killed , in resident to resident incidents where there is often no visual record of the event. Resident to resident incidents are by far the most common issue that we have to manage. So it is timely that I re host this video of the open forum and stimulate more discussion. ACMA is hosting another forum in Perth in September to discuss the issues, ethics, rights and responsibilities with residents, providers and staff.
