SHOW YOU CARE: Change the law to allow ethical CCTV in care homes across Australia
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!
that's life! magazine's Show You Care campaign is calling for the government to legislate for the use of ethical video surveillance in private rooms of aged care facilities, with the permission of residents or their family members/guardians.
Noleen Hausler's dad, Clarence "Clarry" Hausler was assaulted repeatedly by his carer, who held a napkin over his face and violently shoved food in his mouth. She was only able to catch the abuse because she placed hidden cameras in her father's room.
In June 2016, Clarry's carer Corey Lyle Lucas pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault against Clarence Hausler and received a six-month jail sentence.
Sadly Noleen's beloved dad passed away in 2017, aged 91. In his honour Noleen is calling for video surveillance to be allowed in private rooms of aged care homes.
No Australian aged care resident should endure the abuse Noleen's father had to suffer, but those who wish to use video surveillance are putting themselves at risk of a criminal prosecution.
that's life! believes every resident has the right to quality care and to feel safe from the threat of abuse.
If you believe that too please join our Show You Care campaign and sign our petition.
