My father is 89 and has dementia....some days he is good, some not so good. He is in a nursing home and when I went to visit him the other day, he had a noticeable bruise and deep indentation on the side of his nose where his glasses sit on his face. I asked him what happened and he told me someone smacked him in the face as he slept in his geri-chair. I asked him who did it and he said he didn't know (he sleeps with his blanket pulled completely over his head). I'm thinking it may have been another patient. I emailed the social worker of the facility to make her aware of the incident. My brother (who is our fathers guardian) is now upset because I brought this to their attention and he is concerned about the impending investigation. Was I wrong to let the social worker know about the incident? They're saying that the department of elderly services and the police may get involved.
