Make All Mental Health Unit Staff Wear Audio and Image Recording Cameras

As someone who has been an inpatient in mental health units I have experienced both violent and threatening behaviour from hospital staff as well as intimidation. I was pushed to the ground and threatened by a particular member of staff and I feel that this was totally unacceptable. I don’t even wish to imagine how many other people have experienced behaviour similar to this from hospital staff who are supposed to be there to help us get better. I feel that this behaviour needs stop and I think a perfect solution would be for ALL mental health nurses and health care assistants to wear body cameras that are always recording both audio and image. This would prevent a lot of rude comments, threats, intimidation and violence from staff and give patients a better chance at a quick recovery.
