Brown University Survey on Camera Use

Researchers at Brown University are conducting a short, 8-question multiple choice national anonymous survey to learn about nursing center and assisted living policies regarding camera use in resident rooms.

As you know, there has been renewed attention in the media on the use of cameras in resident rooms in nursing centers or assisted living facilities. While there is no federal law, some states now have regulations allowing private individuals to install cameras in nursing center resident rooms, and others are considering adopting similar laws. This survey will help estimate how widespread the use of cameras is in resident rooms. It also will help provide information on how requests for cameras are handled by facilities, how staff feel about cameras observing their behavior, and the unintended negative consequences of using cameras in this way.

Please use the attached link to complete this short online survey even if your facility has no policy or doesn’t permit cameras in resident rooms.  They do not collect your name or the name of your facility. They guarantee that your answers are entirely anonymous (e.g., they have no way to link your response to you or your facility). 

Please follow this link to complete this 2-minute online survey:
