Abuse And Neglect In Healthcare
Elder and child abuse is tragic, horrifying, and unthinkable. Yet, it's estimated that hundreds of thousands of elders and children are abused each year. Our picture of elder and child abuse is limited, due to the hidden and complex nature of the problem and the failure of healthcare workers and others to report elder and child abuse consistently. It can be hard to spot the more subtle forms of neglect and abuse. They're often unrecognized, because victims tend to be isolated. This program shows how to recognize elder or child abuse and neglect, how to respond to the cases, and the importance of committing yourself to safeguarding clients in your care.
