    Step One

    It’s been a long and busy shift, and as it draws to a finish, an HCA approaches you, visibly upset due to the recent death of a resident they were particularly close to. Would you:

    write down the number for the Employee Support Hub phone line and tell them to give one of the trained counsellors a call to talk things through.take them straight to the Registered Manager, explain the situation and ask them to help.make a couple of cups of tea, then sit down and allow them open up to you about how they’re feeling.

    Why did you choose this answer and how do you feel it’s more appropriate than the other options?

    Step Two

    Reassure him that what is already in place is the best possible care his mother could be receiving.Advise him that you will look to make changes and will update him with any improvements to her care on his next visit.Sit down with the resident and discuss any issues that she has with the care she has been receiving.

    What made you decide to pick this answer and why do you think it’s the best of the available options?
