This course was designed to help healthcare workers with in the Ambulatory Surgical Centers environment identify abuse, and use appropriate procedures to care for each patient, managing cases from childhood to elderly adulthood. The key difference between abuse and neglect is how directly the abuser delivers harm. Neglect is a passive event defined by a failure to take appropriate action, whereas abuse is an active event done directly to the victim. A parent that doesn’t provide access to food or seasonally appropriate clothing is being neglectful. They’re failing to meet the daily needs so that the child can grow in a safe environment. A caregiver that hits or burns an older adult in their care is being abusive. They are actively and directly causing injury to the person.
