How would the installation of video cameras help with the future handling of infectious diseases?

One of the things video cameras will enable us to do is look and see how day-to-day caregivers at the bedside of nursing home residents and assisted living residents acted. What were they doing to, in fact, keep their environment clean?

Many CNA’s and daily caregivers, fail to recognize that the way they use their hands, what they touch, not using gloves, not using masks, can have a devastating effect on the population of these facilities.

The way you can help address that is to have a camera at bedside seeing:

  • What they’re doing with their hands.
  • What they’re doing in regard to respiratory issues, if they need masks.
  • Go back and correct problems, or in the event that there’s a bad outcome, see what actually occurred and if something was not within the standard of care.
