  Purpose

3 Nursing homes in the Limousin region will be equipped with the automated telesurveillance system. Patient will be selected by general practitioner and randomized into two groups after informed consent. One group will have cameras installed and the other will not and will act as a comparison group. Patient will be assessed three times during the study, at inclusion, 6 months and 12 months. Each assessment is composed of a standard geriatric assessment, a fall questionnaire, an autonomy scale (SMAF scale) and a quality of life questionnaire (EQ5D). Every falls will be considered as adverse events and will therefore be listed along the study and characterized in types and number.


Condition Intervention
The Elderly of 75 Years and Living in Nursing Homes
Other: It will then allow them to intervene at the right time and the right place

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The impact of the automated telesurveillance system on the risk ratio of falls [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The impact of the automated telesurveillance system on the risk ratio of falls with serious outcomes between the two groups at one year


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The impact of the system on global risk of falling [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The impact of the system on autonomy loss [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 216
Study Start Date: March 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
intervention group
Patient in the "intervention group" will have camera installed in their room. These cameras can either work in visible or infrared range. They are physically linked to a server that will store and analyze images in real-time. The server works 24h/24 and 7d/7 and will send an alert to the care personnel via their computers and personal pagers if it detects an anomaly. Anomaly could be falls, high risk behavior (patient standing up on its bed), abnormal length of stay in the bathroom, prolonged inertia. It will then allow them to intervene at the right time and the right place. Geriatrician can also review images in order to determine the cause of the incident and then act on each patient prevention and care strategy
Other: It will then allow them to intervene at the right time and the right place

non-equipped group
Patient in the "non-equipped" group will have usual care
Other: It will then allow them to intervene at the right time and the right place
