  • Abuse Prevention: Direct Care Staff

    Contains 4 Component(s)

    Per CMS, abuse is the willful infliction of injury, unreasonable confinement, intimidation, or punishment with resulting physical harm, pain or mental anguish. Abuse also includes the deprivation by an individual, including a caretaker, of goods or services that are necessary to attain or maintain physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being. Instances of abuse of all residents, irrespective of any mental or physical condition, cause physical harm, pain or mental anguish. It includes verbal abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and mental abuse including abuse facilitated or enabled through the use of technology. Willful, as used in this definition of abuse, means the individual must have acted deliberately, not that the individual must have intended to inflict injury or harm. This 30 minute presentation was developed to assist caregivers in focusing on each resident’s right to be free of abuse and neglect.

  • Caring for Residents With Bariatric Diagnosis

    Contains 4 Component(s)

    With the increasing rate of obesity, it is important to maintain the dignity of the resident. Obesity has increased from 14.4% to 30.9% from 1976 to 2000. Studies show that bariatric disease and its impact on one’s mobility and quality of life can cause bias, discrimination and social stigmas. There is clear, consistent evidence that individuals with obesity experience discrimination in family, social, education, and employment settings. Even the most compassionate caregiver may be reluctant to provide adequate care because of the threat of caregiver injury. The fear of injury is realistic and combined with the failure to provide satisfactory care to a complex resident, further perpetuation of discrimination toward the obese resident.
