Elder Abuse is “a single, or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older person.” There should be nothing more important to us than preventing Elder Abuse.
No matter how old we are, we are all entitled to be treated as full members of our communities, yet elder abuse is a significant challenge to our facilities. Every one of us wants to think that we keep our residents safe from harm. We want to believe that all of the staff feels the same way. Everyone is watching what we do, and what we say. On top of the attorneys, there are families and visitors keeping on eye out for what we do.
The Resident’s Rights and staff interaction are also under the microscope. Staff tends to residents on a 24-hour basis. Can you always know what takes place? Can you be sure that residents are being treated with the care and respect they deserve?
This session will help you define what is considered abuse and give you key points to avoid the very pitfalls that attorneys and surveyors are looking for.
Join Marge Jordan, RN, LTC Educator as she discusses these important points and shares insight into how to train staff appropriately to be sure everyone sees the signs.
This webinar will be of interest to Administrators, RN, Key Department Heads, others involved in direct resident care.
Please forward to others within your community that would benefit from participating.
