Grandson Installs Nursing-Home Camera, Discovers Alleged Abuse
A while back I posted about how granny-cams (a take on the popular nanny-cam) could help to detect elder abuse. It works, as evidenced by this case in California. In the video captured, you can see the caregivers slamming the resident into her chair, then tilting it back and shaking the woman violently. I had to turn it off.
Here's a direct link to the article and video from the Sacramento Bee: http://www.sacbee.com/2011/01/14/3323284/grannycam-video-spurs-state-to.html. (Warning: disturbing video).
HT to OurParents for posting about the article.
