Nursing home surveillance bill passes Okla. Senate | News
OKLAHOMA CITY – Homeowners use surveillance cameras as a form of protection and now a bill aimed at protecting nursing home residents uses that same principle.
Senate Bill 587 unanimously passed the Okla. Senate Tuesday.
The “Protect Our Loved Ones” Act would allow residents to put cameras in their rooms.
The bill now heads to the House for consideration.
