Man who took video of alleged nursing home abuse says mum complained for years

The man who had secretly filmed his mother's alleged mistreatment at the Nightingale Nursing Home has spoken. He told Shin Min Daily News that his mother had been complaining to him for about three years. The video was handed to the Ministry of Health (MOH) by MediaCorp, which received it in March. MOH imposed a suspension on the nursing home on April 12 as they investigated the complaints. Some other nursing homes The New Paper spoke to said they have installed closed-circuit television cameras and taken precautions to mitigate against potential abuse in their nursing homes. More in The New Paper on Saturday (June 11).
