Proposed Law to Allow Video and Audio Monitoring In Illinois Nursing Homes

On Monday, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan announced a proposed law that would allow families to install video and audio capturing devices in their relatives’ nursing home rooms. While there is currently no law explicitly banning the practice, the proposed law would obligate all nursing home facilities in Illinois to allow families to monitor their relatives with video and audio equipment.

Intended to protect residents from abuse and neglect, video and audio monitoring would allow families to remotely check on their relatives at any time of the day. Critically, the nursing home resident—along with anyone else sharing their room—must first consent to being monitored by their family.

Little girl killed by dog

At the end of last year, a two-year-old Chicago girl died after being attacked by a dog.

The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is conducting an investigation into the death of Jah’niyah White. White was reportedly left unattended while staying at her grandfather’s residence on the 3300 block of East 91st Street.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s autopsy report indicated that she died from a serious head injury related to a dog attack. Investigators stated that neglect was the main contributing factor in White’s death.

The attorneys at Spiros Law, P.C., extend our sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of Jah’niyah White.
