Due to his condition he was not able to verbally communicate his levels of pain and symptoms, which included redness, rashes and broken skin. Billy is meant to be fully examined for bedsores and other lesions every day. After 4 days, a new worker raised concerns to management however they decided it was best to wait until the next day to provide treatment.
  1. Explain what type of abuse occurred here and the signs and indicators of such abuse. Explain how the staff did not exercise their duty of care.
 
Jaycee is 72 and lives in a residential care facility. She is in care due to a range of physical disabilities and illnesses that have left her husband and family unable to care for her. Her husband, her son (Kellan) and his wife often come to visit her, usually every weekend. They spend lots of time with her and it is clear they care deeply for her wellbeing. Jaycee loves their visits and her spirits are always high when she knows it is the weekend and her family are coming. Jaycee has another son, Warwick, who visits her sporadically. He never stays long and rarely asks the care team about her health or how she is going. You can tell by Jaycee’s body language and the tension between the two that the relationship is strained. Jaycee does not discuss Warwick much, and you can see that she is relieved when he leaves. Jaycee’s husband passes away suddenly from a heart attack. Jaycee’s son and daughter-in-law are busy sorting out the family home, packing up items and supporting their own children through the grief of losing a grandparent. Suddenly Warwick’s visits to his mother increase. He is coming several times a week. Kellan mentions that he is concerned with Warwick’s sudden interest in his mother – there have been arguments over money since their father passed away. He asks you, as one of Jaycee’s carers, to mention his concerns to the team as he has his suspicions on Warwick’s true intentions. One day, you are passing by Jaycee’s room and hear Warwick talking rapidly to Jaycee. You can tell by his tone of voice that he is being persuasive and pushy. You backtrack and enter the room to ask Jaycee if she would like a cup of tea or if she needs anything. She looks uncomfortable and says no, she is fine. Later that afternoon Jaycee tells you that Warwick is trying to get her to transfer the family home to him rather then Kellan and his wife, who already have their own home. Jaycee does not want to do this, but he is being very forceful and says he will keep coming to visit her until she gives in. She is scared to tell Kellan because the family is going through so much right now.
  • Explain what type of abuse is occurring here and the signs and indicators of such abuse. As a carer, what would be your duty of care and would mandatory reporting be required (consider your own state or territory).
 

Question 10

Janessa advises her supervisor that she needs to undergo surgery to address some issues with a physical disability. Later that day, she is very surprised when some of her colleagues start asking her about her surgery. She hadn’t mentioned it to anyone yet! Apparently her supervisor sent out an email to all staff letting them know Janessa was having specific type of surgery and would be on leave for a week.

Has Janessa’s employer breached her rights to privacy? Explain your answer.

 

Question 11

Peta’s support worker Trish tells her she should take part in a new clinical trial for her disability. Peta is told it would be a good opportunity for her to see if the new medications will help her. Peta is not too sure, however Trish already signed Peta up to participate in the trial the day before she told her, as a surprise and as she is sure the results will be positive. Trish does not know too much about the success of the drug or its side effects but she believes Peta will appreciate it when she feels better from it.

What should Trish have provided Peta with prior to signing her up to participate in the trial?

 

Question 12

Andy is overly protective of his elderly dad Jeff, who resides in a local residential facility. Andy visits Jeff a few times a week and sometimes on the weekends makes an effort to take him out to the shops. Jeff enjoys having playing chess and having an ice cream in the park, however as Jeff is getting older Andy is worried about risking his dad from getting sick or falling over outside, so suggests they play chess inside and not have any more ice cream. Whilst playing chess Andy always lets his dad win. Jeff is never taken out to the park for an ice cream for months and always wins the indoor game of chess. Andy thinks it is for the best and a good risk management strategy to prevent him from both injury and illness.

What are your thoughts about Andy’s approach with his dad? In your response, refer to dignity of risk.

 

Question 13

  1. Explain in your own words the purpose of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.
 
CHCDIS007 FACILITATING THE EMPOWERMENT OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY
Nigel is blind. He has an office job – his workplace has provided adaptive technology so he can do his work. Every day Nigel’s carer takes him to work. He is able to use a cane to manoeuvre around the workplace. Nigel was allocated a guide dog after working in the office for a few months. This is very exciting for Nigel as he can finally be independent and get to work by himself. Nigel’s dog has been in the workplace for two weeks now. Nigel’s manager has called him into his office.  The manager expresses his deep sorrow – Nigel can no longer keep his job. Two members of staff have complained about the dog. One of the staff members stepped in dog faeces on the grass outside the office, and the other one has developed hay fever, which she believes is due to an allergy to animals. Nigel is distraught – the dog is meant to make things easier for him, not make him lose his job!

Case Study 1: Emma
Emma is of strict Catholic background. She resides alone in a group home village where she is looked after for her intellectual disability needs. The units in the village are located close to each other and have single occupancy or multiple occupancy. All residents in the village have a type of intellectual disability. Support workers attend to each unit regularly, providing in-home visits across all units. One of the male support workers, Chris (who provides Emma with in-home care and assistance) forced himself upon her to engage in sexual intercourse on a number of occasions. He saw this as an opportunity to challenge Emma’s Catholic beliefs and practices. After the incident happened, Emma became withdrawn from others in the residential community and stopped interacting with them like she used to. Emma tentatively raises the occurrence with another support worker, Phil, who is visiting the village one day. Phil assures her that Chris would not have behaved that way intentionally and laughed it off, insisting he was probably just joking around because he is not a religious person, and he was known to the others for his jovial nature and sense of humour. She was also advised to do as she is told by Chris to keep out of his way and off his bad side. Emma never mentioned this again to any of the other workers and was made to accept the situation. She was led to believe that this type of occurrence was part of Chris’s role. Chris continued to rape her upon his visits and, as a result, she became completely withdrawn from the community.
  1. What are Emma’s rights? How would you, if you were one of her carers, ensure she understood her rights. In your answer, explain how you could use technology to help her in this regard.
 
  • What is Phil’s responsibility in this situation? How should he have responded to ensure that services were delivered in a manner that upheld Emma’s rights and needs?
 
  • What type of support does Emma need? What might need to happen in this case so she can feel safe and protected?
 
  • Are Emma’s cultural needs being respected? Explain your answer.
 
  • What legal and ethical breaches have occurred in this scenario?
 
  • If you were Emma’s support worker, what signs or symptoms would you be able to observe or identify that show something wrong/bad has occurred? What would you have done when you had realised there was a problem?
 
  • What would you do to help empower and advocate disability rights for Emma and other residents in the village?
 
  • Imagine you are helping Emma exercise her rights. Who could a complaint be made to? Provide website links or contact details of places that could be contacted.
 
  • Refer to the UNCRPD and identify at least two articles that are relevant to Emma’s case.

Case Study 2: Ryo
Ryo is a 17-year-old boy who has cerebral palsy and severe spastic quadriparesis. Ryo cannot mobilise himself or bear his own weight, and he is required to use a wheelchair. He is not able to verbally communicate with people much – only make certain sounds now and then. Ryo lives in a residential care facility where his mother, Kumiko, comes to visit daily. One morning whilst assisting in changing Ryo’s clothes, Kumiko notices bruising on his left femur. Symptoms of the bruising appear suspect of a potential fracture. Kumiko informs the staff on duty and a medical specialist comes to review the symptoms. The medical specialist confirms that Ryo has sustained a fracture most likely two days prior, and he shows prominent symptoms of physical abuse. The physical trauma appears to have occurred by being hit with a hard object, or by Ryo being pushed or tipped out of his wheelchair. Kumiko raises an investigation into the residential staff and services, however no reporting or documentation of Ryo’s injury is ever recorded. The occurrence of Ryo’s injury never gets resolved.
  1. What is the responsibility of the residential care facility? How should they have responded to ensure a person-centred approach to ensure Ryo was supported?
 
  •  
  • After confirming the cause of injury, what type of support does Ryo and his family require? 
 
  • Are the rights of Ryo and his family being exercised? Explain your answer.
