When Ed Robins noticed bruising and skin tears on his 92-year-old mother, he decided to install a small video camera in her room at Perth's Morrison Lodge nursing home.
The footage he captured over three weeks made for distressing viewing.

The hidden camera footage, provided to the ABC's Four Corners, captured the staff response.
