This morning I had to ask one of the carers to leave... Was rather short with her but she basically does bugger all when here anywa and alwsys turns up late to leave other carer to do hard work of moving and handling.
This morning she turned up late as usual and came in coughing and spluttering. I said are you ill and she said yes my chest is bad. I said don't go any further and keep away from us. She thought I was joking...I made it clear I wasn't joking and for her to go. I helped other carer. They know Mum has a cold this week as it is. Sent in yet another email to office with my concerns and I'm rather shocked she thought it OK to turn up at clients houses in the state she was. The agency is so short staffed they don't seem to care.
This particular carer works in the office too so you would think would know better but I am aware she has told other carers not to make it obvious if they are ill when she is on call.
Now I'm sat here feeling bad for being short with her!
