“I work in a private care home, and we suffer from constant understaffing it is also an EMI home and we have lots of very challenging residents.

No staff member has had any de-escalation training and has no idea how to deal with these people, this results in many staff members being attacked, I myself had a standing hoist kicked over by foot by a resident which lead to a DVT and blood clots on my lungs which nearly resulted in my death.

I feel there is no support for care workers like me “
