There is a controversy stirring in Wyoming and across the country. It has to do with webcams, more specifically, using them to deter nursing home negligence by installing them in residents' rooms to monitor goings on. A woman in another state did this when she was concerned about the quality of care her mother was receiving.
Many Wyoming nursing home patients need medication on a regular basis. It is critical that caregivers adhere to stringent protocol and regulations that govern dispensation of medication to avoid making errors. Nursing home negligence involving medication can be life-threatening to a patient.
Many Wyoming residents live in nursing homes. Perhaps a majority of such facilities house an aging population, many members of which have special needs due to failing mental or physical health. There are also many patients who are temporarily residing in nursing homes while they recover from surgery or injuries of some kind. In any case, no patient should ever have to worry about nursing home negligence.
