Sadly, we report that here in the wonderful O.C. (Orange County, CA), two nursing homes were fined for by California health regulators because of inadequate care that led to the death of two elderly patients. Patients that could have been your Mother or Father.
Alamitos West Health Care Center in Los Alamitos was fined $100,000 (a paultry amount, though the states maximum penalty), for the death of an elderly women of dehydration, who died on Christmas day of last year. What a way for an elderly person to go…
And a man in Huntington Valley Health Care Center in Huntington Beach became ill, and was vomiting. A friend at bedside asked they call the patients family & paramedics. CPR was not started until they came, and he died of a heart attack.
Now this is just 2 out of 1,400 nursing homes in California, so we hope this these are isolated incidents, however, it’s too late to do anything after the fact.
If you have a parent, friend, or family member in a nursing home, you should consider setting up some type of hidden camera to make sure they are getting the very best care. Hidden Granny cams should be used to notify you of possible problems, not to bust anyone.
With a hidden camera like the Tissue Box Video Surveillance System, you can set down an innocent looking box of tissues right by your loved ones bed, and point it right at them to see who comes in or who does NOT come in to take care of them.
Tissue Box Video Surveillance System
The Tissue Box Video Surveillance System is a state of the art, fully self contained, 1 camera video recording system that has NO cords! Just arm it with your remote control, and it will record large, clear videos (no sound), on internal SD cards. Only you will know it’s a secret hidden camera!
Since it has motion detection, the Tissue Box Video Surveillance System will only record when someone walks in front of it, triggering the motion sensor.
Choose between large, 720 x 480 video up to 30 fps, or still JPG photographs. You can upgrade to 16GB of memory for up to 3 days of recording. However, the battery will die after 6 hours of straight recording, or up to 12-24 hours of motion activated recording, depending on how much activity happens.
If you have elderly parents in assisted care home, you owe it to them, and to yourself to make sure they are being taken care of. The only way to do it is to be a fly on the wall. Since you can’t become Brundle fly, and hang out on the ceiling, do the next best thing. Pick up the Tissue Box Video Surveillance System, or any of our other hidden cameras with built in DVR, and set it up to see if your loved ones are being taken care of.
