CCTV Trial In Aged Care Facilities

The Government funded trial that involved setting up CCTV cameras in residential aged care facilities to detect when patients have accidents such as falling over or other incidents between workers and residents. However, the artificial intelligence that was used in these cameras to detect these incidents was not able to distinguish the difference between a resident kneeling down and having fallen, therefore causing thousands of false alarms, ultimately leading to the failure of the trial.

Advocates say that despite this failure, this idea should not be ruled out and it’s worth exploring more options to tackle these issues.
