A new article on an industry website called Senior Housing News reveals that a growing number of states across the country are considering legislation to allow what are commonly called “Granny Cams” in skilled nursing homes – and some of these new laws would expand camera monitoring to assisted living facilities and other types of senior housing. Simply put, it’s a camera installed at the request (and expense) of the family of a nursing home resident that monitors the type of care the resident is receiving.

“In a lot of cases, nobody knows what the person who is impacted by this law wants,” Swanson said.
Nursing home cameras are already allowed in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Maryland and Washington state.
We are often asked by families whether it is legal for them to place a hidden camera in their loved one’s nursing home room. So families are wondering how they can keep an eye on loved ones and the care providers in Virginia long term care facilities.
These cameras have long been called “granny cams.” In this day in age, with today’s technology, you can sit at work and watch a baby sleep soundly over a video monitor miles away, on your IPhone. Though some states have laws that prevent the facilities from forbidding the cameras, current Virginia law allows a nursing home to refuse to allow such a device.
In the five states that currently allow Granny Cams, cameras are only installed and used if residents, their families and their roommates want them.
