Rushing can lead to accidents and errors.
If a CHW finds that there is not sufficient time to safely complete a care plan please take the following steps. Phone your CSC (Scheduler) and inform them that there is not enough time allotted to safely complete the care plan. Confirm that the CSC will send a dated note to the Case Manager. Keep a written record of your call.
This needs to be done each time you experience this. Making one report is unlikely to result in a change to the allotted time.
If the allotted time is not increased following two requests to the CSC – this should be brought to the attention of a Union Safety Rep.
If the client is taken away from you or this is dealt with as a 'refuse' this should be reported to a Shop Steward for further action.
The names and telephone numbers of Safety Reps and Shop Stewards can be found by calling BCGEU at 604-215-1499.
