Oklahoma Passes ‘Granny Cam’ Law To Help Reduce Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

11-20-2013 Oklahoma:

Nursing home neglect and abuse have become regular occurrences. When you place your elder loved ones in assisted living facilities you never really know how they will be treated. Thankfully, there are laws that can now protect our Grannys (grandparents) who reside in nursing homes.

Oklahoma has become the third state to pass “Granny cam” laws. According to the law, surveillance cameras may be used in nursing homes in Oklahoma as long as consent forms are filed that notify the facility of such use.

Moreover, “Granny cam” laws allow the families, who place the hidden cameras in the nursing home residents’ rooms, to have exclusive rights to the recording as well as use the recordings in court.
