Patient Abuse & Neglect Training

Abuse and neglect can happen to any patient; however, elderly and mentally or physically disabled patients are at a higher risk, as are those in long-term care facilities. It is not known for certain how many patients suffer or have suffered from abuse because many cases go unreported and unrecognized. Often, healthcare professionals miss the signs of patient abuse because they haven’t had adequate training on detecting abuse. This patient abuse and neglect training course provides the information healthcare workers need recognize abuse and neglect and how to prevent it from happening.
