Sexual Advances Towards Staff
A resident’s age-related loss of inhibition and control may result in inappropriate verbal and physical advances such as sexually explicit comments and touching or grabbing staff. This is extremely disturbing for nursing assistants or other staff who provide daily and necessary personal care. If residents aren’t able to control these behaviors, firm actions and policies must be instituted.
In this DVD, Dr. Georgia Stevens, a specialist in disruptive behaviors and behavior management, leads an interactive discussion with staff at a long-term care facility. Nursing assistants talk about the experiences they’ve had when residents turn moments when they are offering comforting touch or friendly hugs into sexual encounters. They describe residents who regularly insist on touching breasts or who make on-going sexual propositions. With Dr. Steven’s guidance, they identify ways to set boundaries and to develop policies which protect staff. Staff in long-term care and assisted living will be reassured they are not alone with these disturbing behaviors and benefit from suggestions provided.
