Scenarios for Assignment

Scenario 1: Resident-to-Staff Aggression in a Skilled Nursing Home

Scenario 1 Summary: An elderly dementia SNF resident has been verbally and physically aggressive with staff.  This resident has been placed in the SNF’s secured dementia unit as they require skilled care and needs a locked unit for their own safety. The staff has employed all their skills and procedures to assist the resident with a positive living experience, but the resident continues to be physically and verbally abusive. Some of these events have occurred in the common areas such as the dining room and have negatively impacted the other dementia residents. One dementia resident tried to help the staff member and the combative resident, resulting in the other resident falling down, but thankfully, neither resident was not injured during this event. Despite all efforts, interventions, and steps by the staff, medical providers, and SNF leadership, this aggressive behavior continues. Concerns regarding this resident’s safety exist, concerns regarding other residents’ safety, and concerns of staff safety exist.
