What is the law in Western Australia pertaining Elderly Abuse?.What happens if i dont report a case?
It depends on who you suspect of the abuse and where the person you suspect is being abused lives. Personally speaking you have a moral obligation not to mention a duty of care. If the person lives in a residential care facility then there are mandatory requirements.
You need to speak to your manager /educator for education on mandatory reporting requirements
