From Engadget: An early trial has found that staff-worn body cameras can reduce confrontation and aggressive behavior, including incidents of physical restraint, in psychiatric hospitals.

“If all major incidents are recorded, hospital staff will be further encouraged to avoid misconduct. The final footage could also be used to settle disputes between staff and patients, and help shape future training programs and care techniques. Sixty-one percent of those who wore the cameras agreed they could prevent confrontation because carers were more likely to behave professionally.”
