Care Protect's ethos is, If implemented appropriately, it is widely acknowledged the use of CCTV filming is the best method to protect people. Aware that public trust in adult and child health & social care is being undermined by incidents of poor care or malpractice, including those regularly reported in the media, Care Protect has been set up to help address this issue.
Care Protect offers a system that combines the use of filming of images and audio activity and the latest secure cloud technology, with monitoring undertaken by our team of highly experienced independent experts, to safeguard and protect adults and children in health & social care settings and, by this greater transparency, improve standards of care quality and safety.
Simple, secure, encrypted filming, the cameras and filming adopted by Care Protect uses the most advanced and affordable, secure and private cameras which are visually unobtrusive. The installation and ongoing maintenance of this equipment is straightforward and the necessary technical expertise, support and training is managed by the Care Protect specialist team.
The cameras include sound and motion detection and infrared facilities so immediate alerts can be raised if an incident is seen or heard or there is a connectivity or maintenance issue. They also include privacy settings to block any agreed zones or areas of view the cameras would normally show.
By the use of a Visual Network Adaptor (VNA) and requiring just straightforward internet access, a unique connection is made from the cameras to your secure and protected cloud based account. Therefore this enables all the film and audio footage to be pushed to an online encrypted storage portal, customised to support your requirements (a process having gained the highly acclaimed Secure by Design status). An additional benefit this creates is that no local recording or local storage of footage takes place and instead all film images and audio activity is stored off site in the secure and protected web based setting.
Jayne Connery who founded Care Campaign for the Vulnerable to champion and support CCTV in care homes is looking forward to visiting Care Protect and seeing for herself how modern CCTV technology can prove invaluable in more places then just care homes. Jayne said ahead of her visit ‘’CCTV should be implemented in all care facilities. I think it’s very important to see how a company like Care Protect operates and how they work with CCTV monitoring to help bring transparency into care homes and mental health hospitals and learning how this type of technology can assist every day in the protection of vulnerable people’’.
British Actress Aimi Macdonald is Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Ambassador - raising public awareness for better, safer, transparent care within the care sector.
I am delighted to be invited as a Ambassador to assist in this wonderful campaign instigated by Jayne Connery regarding CCTV security in care homes throughout the UK. This, I feel, will benefit carers, staff, residents and their families in the event of any dispute. As a relative of someone suffering with Alzheimers disease I have been involved with care homes over the last ten years and I feel the knowledge I have can contribute to this very important initiative
