Q. I’m a caregiver for an elderly woman residing in an Old Age Home. I noticed that my client had scratches and bruises on her. Out of years of experience, I was reasonably certain that they were inflicted by the other caregivers that complement her care. I called the police, the did ask some questions, but were unable or unwilling to determine anything helpful. I feel responsible for my client, what can I do?
A. Since there is obviously a family member or members that hired you, are paying for the care, and are likely the responsible persons for your client, it stands to reason that you should make them aware of what is happening, and make them responsible for the outcome.
Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that them or you should set up recording cameras in all the areas she frequents.
