I found the article to be very informative and a good review of what to look for in all patients and how to go about reporting if suspecting abuse.

Much like a needed reminder to wash hands between clients, this course reminded me how vulnerable the elderly population has become. Especially during this time of Social Distancing, the course reminds me to reach out to the elderly in my community to help serve their needs.
