Whose Rights? Rights Protection in Long-Term Care
In this commentary, the author provides an analysis of rights protection in long-term care settings, focusing on one particular aspect: the use of new technologies such as surveillance cameras. The author examines this aspect from the perspective of the rights of those who provide care (e.g., care workers) and those who receive care. The author argues that one of the most urgent issues to be considered is the protection of vulnerable people, and imply that the identity of the vulnerable parties – whose rights need to be protected – depends on the situation; in some cases, they represent people receiving care, and in others, people providing care. The author also argues that surveillance cameras could be used to protect the rights of both parties – in particular, the right to be protected from abuse and offense.
