Graciela Gris Scenario Overview

Graciela Gris is a 60-year-old woman with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Her ability to move is compromised. She lives alone and receives assistance from two home health service agencies. Some days, both the personal care worker and home health aide are at Graciela's home at the same time. This occurs when Peggy, the personal care worker, comes in for about 30 minutes to assist with cares. 

Two people are needed to transfer Graciela to the bathtub. Peggy has noticed that Halle, the home health aide, seems to lack patience with Graciela and her inability to move quickly. Peggy suspects that some care basics have been neglected, like assisting Graciela with her stretching exercises. She also suspects that Halle does not always make sure Graciela has taken her medication. She always seems to be in a rush when she is working with Graciela.

Scenario Learning Points:

  1. Recognize the signs of neglect by a caregiver
  2. Understand appropriate intervention strategies when observing possible misconduct by caregivers outside your agency
  3. Understand duty to report poor care or mistreatment in any situation
