Trust can be gained through the way care workers communicate with there service users, patience, and an appropriate behavior this way a care worker and a service user will develop a supportive relationship. It's also very important that service users needs and beliefs are respected as well as valued. Care workers shouldn't think the got all the power for there service users just because there in there care. Service users have got the same rights as everybody else regardless. Care workers have got to apply to the care value base in order to be able to treat service users in an appropriate way. Treating people equally means treating service users fairly without discrimination. A relationship is a connection among two or more people. .for instance group of friends or sexual partners. Professional relationship is a link between a patient /service user and the people that provide there care. This sort of relationship has boundaries, limitations and expectations; that must be valued and applied at all times in order to have a supportive and good relationship. All health and social care professionals should understand this, because it is always stated and fully explained in their codes of conducts and ethics. New employess need to be told by there employers the importance of having a good relationship with the people there going to be looking after, a new employee has also got to be told to respect service users rights at all times and not treat then in a way that will make a service users feel useless and valued Its very important that in places that look after the vulnerable the should Promote the right of each individual ...read more.

Dependency Some service users are fully dependent and have to rely on others to meet their basic care needs. A lot of disabled and older people usually depend on their carers to look after. � Some people are fully dependent and have to rely on others to meet their basic care needs (e.g. people in a coma, or those who are paralysed or on life support machines) � Some may be at risk of neglect or physical abuse through rough handling, or staff may be short-handed, rushed and may miss attending to routine needs. Health problems Health -related injuries may be used to hide physical abuse, weight loss may be increased through neglect, slowness makes them easy target to bully. � Some health problems cause easy bruising, broken bones, loss of weight or inability to move fast � Health-related injuries may be used to hide physical abuse, weight loss may be increased through neglect, and slowness makes for an easy target to bully. Learning difficulties Service user who have learning difficulties is lack of self-confidence, and esteem, so therefore is very vulnerable with regards to abuse. � The service user may be unable to understand what is happening especially in relation to financial and sexual abuse � There may also be a communication and/or a behaviour problem � Abusers may give the impression that the abuse is normal practice or a response to service users' undesirable behaviour. Home More individuals are supported within their home environment by a range of health and social care services than ever before. Home is where most people would choose to remain when they have health or social carte needs that require support from others. Individuals may be supported at home by family or friend as well as health and social care service provider, such as domiciliary care or district nursing services. The home environment does, however, present a number of potential opportunities for abuse not only of the individual being supported but also of those providing that support. ...read more.

Conclusion

These laws exist because it is able to protect all service user especially the vulnerable ones in terms of legislations' that particularly apply to them. This legislation protects everyone including care workers and service users, because when a mentally ill person behaves very dangerously and causes harm to a care worker and the clients in the care home, the individual causes harm to itself. Therefore the mental; health act suggests that for these reasons the service user can be "detained in the care home against their wishes if they are considered to be ill". This legislation protects everyone also by providing extra care workers in the mentally disabled sector. Service user do not need to tell staff or other members of the care home about the complaint they are making if the don't wish to and therefore this means that this should be a confidential process. Policies and procedures: the criminal records bureau The criminal records bureau contributes to the protection of vulnerable adults by providing a police check under the police act 1997. The CRB check protects service user by reducing the risks of abuse. This means that any care worker who comes in the care home will have to go through a CRB check. Vulnerable adults will be protected because of the CRB test; this is helps any staff with a recent of theft, fraud or serious bodily harm will not be employed as a career in the care home. Therefore this means that service users are less likely to get abused. All organisations need to have policies and procedures that will help protect service users and investigate allegations in the event of an abuse occurring. All patients and staff need to know to report any concerns to e.g. regarding poor practices or abuse. These are some of the examples of proper working practices that may need o be applied this care setting prior to its opening in order to minimise the risk of abuse. ...read more.
