Effective January 1, 2020, residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities are permitted by law to conduct electronic monitoring of their living space. Is your facility in compliance? In addition to making your residents informed of their option to conduct electronic monitoring of their rooms or living units, compliance policies must be put in place, and consent and notification forms must be made available to residents, roommates, and the facility. Facilities are also required to post signage at each entrance, advising that electronic monitoring devices may be present.
