Families given official green light to use CCTV in care homes to check if staff are abusing their elderly relatives

Families worried that their elderly relatives are being abuse by care home staff are to be given official advice on how to secretly install CCTV cameras. Care home watchdog, the Care Quality Commission, will issue guidance in the New Year explaining how to best monitor staff. A spokeswoman told MailOnline the CQC ‘understood that there are circumstances where some people will feel that is the right thing for them’.  The decision to publish official guidance helping concerned families install cameras was signed off by the CQC’s board today.  It is hoped that the vigilance of family members will help to maintain high standards of care for elderly and vulnerable people.  The advice will also be aimed at managers who suspect malpractice among their staff.
