1. What are possible indicators of abuse of older adults? How can these be identified?

2. If an elder is found to be competent, do they have the right to accept abuse from a caregiver? Why or why not?

3. Read the following scenario and answer from the perspective of a medical social worker.

A 75 year old man with pulmonary fibrosis is admitted for pneumonia.  As you are going towards his room to document his medications, you hear his partner say to him in a nasty tone of voice:  “Stop being so stubborn.  I need you to give me access to your bank accounts.  You’re going to die alone unless you start cooperating.”  As you enter the room, the young man leaves quickly and you notice that the patient has tears in his eyes.  You ask if everything is OK and the patient shakes his head “Yes”, but doesn’t say anything.  After documenting the medication you leave, but the exchange between them keeps replaying in your head.

Questions for Consideration:

1) Are any signs of elder abuse present?  

2) If yes, what types of elder abuse should the nurse be suspicious of?  

3) What actions could you take?  

4) What actions should you not take?  

5) What if:  The patient had said “No” when you asked if everything was OK?
