AHCA Needs Your Help Related to Cameras in Resident Rooms

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

AHCA is requesting you complete a very short anonymous survey about use of cameras in resident rooms. This is their request:

Researchers at Brown University are conducting a short, 8-question, multiple choice national anonymous survey to learn about nursing center and assisted living policies regarding camera use in resident rooms.

As you know, there has been renewed attention in the media on the use of cameras in resident rooms in nursing centers or assisted living facilities. While there is no federal law, some states now have regulations allowing private individuals to install cameras in nursing center resident rooms, and others are considering adopting similar laws. This survey will help estimate how widespread the use of cameras is in resident rooms. It also will help provide information on how requests for cameras are handled by facilities, how staff feel about cameras observing their behavior, and the unintended negative consequences of using cameras in this way.

Please use the attached link to complete this short online survey even if your facility has no policy or doesn't permit cameras in resident rooms. We do not collect your name or the name of your facility. We guarantee that your answers are entirely anonymous (e.g., we have no way to link your response to you or your facility).

Please follow this link to complete this 2-minute online survey:
