A proposed Senate bill would direct the Veterans Affairs Department to report to Congress on the use of security cameras in VA medical centers, according to an article on the NextGov website.
The bill comes more than two years after suspicious deaths at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in Clarksburg, W.V.
A VA nursing assistant injected lethal doses of insulin into several non-diabetic patients, which is believed to have resulted in their deaths.
The bill would mandate a full report to Congress within 180 days of its passage that provides an overarching look into how and where security cameras are put to use in VA medical centers with details describing how the department uses the cameras to monitor staff and how the patient privacy policies would impact the placement of the watchful devices.
