Elder abuse includes physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation, neglect, and abandonment. Approximately 1 in 10 Americans over the age of 60 have experienced elder abuse. EMS providers are mandatory reporters in all states of elder abuse. This means that as an EMT or Paramedic you have a legal obligation to report elder abuse. Do you know the signs of any symptoms, what questions to ask, and the difference between neglect and abuse? Can you spot the difference between dementia, delirium, abuse, and neglect? All four are closely related, and frequently present as acute confusion. This course provides online CEU’s for the EMT and Paramedic, CAPCE accredited and NREMT accepted.
