Burgum Signs Bill Allowing Video Monitoring in Nursing Homes

News

Governor Doug Burgum signed a bill allowing families to put surveillance devices in nursing home facilities. 

This includes video surveillance cameras, web-based cameras, video phones, audio recordings, any other monitoring device, or a combination. 

In order to do this, families must first notify the facility, in writing, that they intend to put a monitoring device in a residents’ room. 

The device must also be placed in a fixed, stationary position that only monitors the area occupied by the resident and not a roommate.

The device must also be paid for by the resident or family. 

The bill also forbids management at a nursing home facility to access the video.
