CCTV in Aged Care? What Do You Need to Know?

What does CCTV mean?

No, not what does the abbreviation stand for, but what does it mean when it comes to your staff’s rights? The residents’ privacy? What about visitors?

Alison Choy Flanagan is a Partner at Hall & Wilcox. In this episode we cover all aspects of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) recording, including:
– Considerations before installing CCTV
– Impact on privacy and employment law
– Covert surveillance and ‘nanny cams’
– Recommendations if an organisation (still) wanted to implement CCTV, and
– Mistakes to avoid when it comes to CCTV
