FORGET BUSINESS INTERESTS – THEY WANT TO HIDE SHORT-STAFFING, ETC.
FORGET POLITICIANS – THEY DO NOT WANT THE EXTENT OF ABUSE EXPOSED
FORGET THE INVASION OF PRIVACY BRIGADE – THEY WOULD SOON CHANGE THEIR MIND IF IT WAS THEIR MUM OR DAD BEING ABUSED
FORGET THE NMC, RCN, AND CQC – THEY ARE NOT LIKELY TO TAKE A FIRM STANCE

BUT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, REMEMBER THE ABUSED PATIENT!

IT COULD BE YOUR MUM OR DAD NEXT!

STOP ABUSE NOW!

  2. Dear Lenin
    It should indeed be mandatory in all state-controlled facilities and those where private providers are providing a public service including care homes where people are placed for their own safety.
    In orther words there must be no hiding place for abuse.
    I totally agree with you.
    Thank you for your great help.
    Best wishes
    Rosemary

    “Smith (2015) hospital staff to wear mini – cameras to records cases of violence of patients towards staff, in Wales emergency unit. “But there’s no excuse for the violence be it verbal or physical” (ibid)- the same could be said of abuse or poor care towards patients from staff. Does the use of body cameras in this case, not dispel arguments AGAINST the use of cameras to monitor care? Or should patients also be allowed to wear a mini-camera? “Cardiff and Vale UHB said there are between 2,500 and 3,000 violent assaults on its hospital staff each year and 46% of them are class as “intentional”(ibid)- how does this figure compare to cases of abuse or malpractice towards patients- many of which are not known about. Recall even falsified records may be identified by the use of cameras- several cases regarding this in the USA.” Regards for ref Malcolm Frisk twitter. Your Voice Matters are taking action.

    from above link “Why is it still repeatedly left to investigative journalists with covert cameras to illuminate the real quality of residential care? ” eyewitness monitoring

    Comments re above petition from Lenin Nightingale;
    Lenin Nightingale says ” what is the point of this petition, when 98% abuse occurs in private areas? Who is going to abuse another person in a communal area ? Why don’t funders ie council, make cameras compulsory otherwise do not get funded. ” No wonder some major folk support this half measured , feeble attempt that hides the issue. Oh look- we have a camera in the ” car park” .Government protect busines interests of their friends.
