Illinois could join a handful of states that allow cameras to be installed in the rooms of nursing home residents.
Supporters say it would give families peace of mind to have electronic monitoring of the care their loved ones receive. But there are also concerns, especially when it comes to privacy.
"Nursing homes, a lot of people tend to forget ... that is their home," Hinsdale Republican Representative Patti Bellock said.
Supporters say the cameras would only be installed when the resident or family agrees. They would also have to cover the cost.
