Question: Is it legal for the family of a nursing home resident to place video or audio monitoring devices in their room? Answer: A bill passed the Illinois House in April 2015 that would allow nursing home residents and their families to place video or audio monitoring devices in their rooms to help ensure their safety and quality care. If the bill passes the Illinois Senate and is signed by the Governor, it will become law. For more information about Illinois law, visit www.illinoislawyerfinder.com.
