Home Health Aides, In Home Healthcare, Home Health Aide Agencies and more!
If so, there are a few things you need to take into consideration. There are many advantages to having a “nanny cam,” the biggest and most obvious of which being that you’ll be able to see any wrongdoing on the part of a home health aide and have hard proof of it. However, there are also disadvantages. For example, there are many gray areas when it comes to the legality of recording someone without his or her knowledge. If you really want to go ahead with a camera, speak with a lawyer first and find out what sort of charges you might face if the home health aide discovers it and decides to take legal action. You could also consider being upfront about it (sort of) and telling the aide that you have security cameras set up around the house.
Also bear in mind that if there is no abuse going on, but you discover there are certain methods the aide is taking that you disagree with, it could make things uncomfortable, especially if you decide to fire the aide and he or she wants to know why.
Of course, the easiest way to avoid the issues that nanny cams might bring is by just not getting one. It’s not hard to find a home health aide that will suit your needs and wants. Be extremely vigilant during the hiring process; better yet, use a home healthcare agency. Makes sure the child care agency you choose has a sterling reputation and is known for its hiring of great aides.
