APS was called in, about an accident with a 3rd degree burn that happened months ago now and it is completely healed withe no pain on my patient's part. The skin has discoloration but that's all...... And to add to my patient's problems, her sisters are making a case out of a healed burn and my patient has terrible mental issues with her sisters.
Plus, her sisters had her living in a back room, she was completely filthy, unkempt, and anorexic. One sisters is disabled herself, and the other does not have proper training to care giving and is always out.
The granddaughter of the patient has Power of attorney over her, the patient is living comfortably, with 3 square meals with fruit and snacks, and hydrated with choices of drinks.
Can they still take her and get the worker in charged fired? And can this case be countered for the patient mental and physical wellness?
