Commissioner Rebeca Sosa urges Florida legislature to allow use of Granny-Cams
What a wonderful idea. The snippet here is just a link really to the article. I've become lazy, and have thus started allowing my news feeder to post to my blog. The legislation would allow the use of granny cams. What are granny cams you ask? Think a nanny cam. A small digital camera that can be placed innocuously, allowing the family of the resident to keep an eye on the care of their loved one from afar.
One point this didn't touch on was the chance for this to be used against the elderly person. I would love to see a provision that allows a found granny cam to be challenged if the home has reason to believe that the person who installed the granny cam is using it against the senior. This situation could arise with a controlling child, who uses the information in the cam to further force the vulnerable adult into submission. How that would look, I don't know. Perhaps a notification to family with a right to challenge the removal in court with a commissioner?
