§63-1-1953.5. Electronic monitoring in nursing homes.

A. A resident or the representative of a resident may conduct authorized electronic monitoring of the resident’s room through the use of authorized electronic monitoring devices placed in the room pursuant to the provisions of this act at the expense of such person or representative of the resident and with the written consent of any other resident living in the room.

B. A resident who conducts authorized electronic monitoring or the representative of the resident may post and maintain a notice at the entrance to the resident’s room stating that the room is being monitored by an electronic monitoring device.

C. Nothing in this act shall be construed to prevent a resident or the representative of the resident from placing an electronic monitoring device in the resident’s room at the expense of such person; however, if such resident is sharing a room with any other resident, the resident or the representative of the resident shall obtain written consent from such other resident or the representative of the resident living in the room and such consent shall be on a form prescribed by the State Department of Health and shall be placed on file with the administrator of the facility.

D. If a resident residing in a shared room, or the representative of a resident residing in a shared room, desires to utilize an authorized electronic monitoring device and another resident living in such shared room refuses to consent to the use of an authorized electronic monitoring device, the nursing facility shall accommodate the resident or the representative of the resident desiring to utilize an authorized electronic monitoring device to move to another room if the resident or resident’s representative requests such a room change within a reasonable amount of time.
