Irresponsible ElderCare Staff Puts on Mask with Vomit on Elderly
To be working under the day care industry, you need to have passion, sincerity and extreme care for those under your responsibility. Unfortunately, not everyone is doing it out of genuine care and passion.
An eldercare staff from St. Luke’s ElderCare is being investigated regarding a complaint from one of the elderly’s son, Royston Tan.
Royston took it to Facebook to express his discontent with the treatment at the eldercare centre. His 76-year-old mother has been attending the daycare and was not feeling well recently that she vomited after lunch. The vomit got onto Mrs Tan’s mask and the eldercare staff did not even bother to give her a new mask.
Royston was shocked when he saw the soiled mask and dirty clothes. According to Royston, he had packed three fresh masks in Mrs Tan’s bag but the staff did not even make use of that. Mrs Tan’s clothes also got dirty from the vomit.
According to Royston, this was not the first time there was a negligence in the care for the elderly. In previous instances, Mrs Tan was found with soiled diapers that resulted in rashes. Even with feedbacks on the negligence, there were no improvement to the situation.
The management of St. Luke’s ElderCare is investigating the incident and will be working to improve the situation.
