Oklahoma: New Nursing Home Hidden Camera Law Begins Today!

November 1, 2013

Oklahoma is one of the worst states when it comes to nursing home quality, according to a national study conducted by a nonprofit elder advocacy group.

On its report card, Families for Better Care gave the state an “F” rating.
 
Proponents of a new law hope hidden cameras will change that. 
 
Undercover cameras caught two caretakers abusing 96-year-old Eryetha Mayberry at an Oklahoma City nursing home. Police arrested the two women shown in the undercover video — Caroline Kaseke and Lucy Gakunga.
 
Kaseke bonded out of jail and has not shown up for court, authorities said. There’s currently a warrant out for her arrest.
 
The video prompted legislation allowing hidden cameras to be installed in nursing homes statewide.
 
It was signed by Gov. Mary Fallin in May and goes into effect on Nov. 1.
