California law mandates that certain individuals report known or suspected instances of elder ror dependent abuse. Failure to do so is a crime.
WHO IS MANDATED REPORTER
Any person who has full responsibility for care or custody of an elder or dependent adult, wether or not the person receives compensation, including administrators, supervisors, and any license staff of a public or private facility, health practitioner, sevices agency or local law enforcement agency is mandated reporter.
Every individual that has knowledge of an incident that appears to be abuse, must file a report. There is no penalty for filing a report; there is a significant penalty for failing to report.
I have posted from the hep c forum months ago because my husband has Hep C and cirhosis of the liver. He is still holding his own.
I have been a private duty caregiver for 25 years now. I have had alot of training in healthcare.
My question is I have an 89 year old female who has had a stroke. She is very fragile. She lives by her self in her condo and does have close neighbors. She has one daughter who is an RN, a grandson who is a Dr. and son in law who is a Dentist. The problem and my concern is that they leave this lady home in her hospital bed from 6pm untill 9:30 the next morning. I don't like this!!Sometimes I have found this lady home by herself during the day. How can this lady get something to eat and all?
This lady can not fend for herself! I have just started this job and I think that it is sad that this is happening. This lady fell while she was in an RN's care hurt her hand. It looks broke. They didn't take her to the Dr. nor did they x-ray it!
I have been offered another position and I think I am going to take it. I don't understand the leaving this lady by herself in the night. In the am when I arrive she has feces and urine and of course I bathe her in the shower.
What would you do in this situation?
NEEDS TO BE REPORTED.....IMHO
