Carer faces being struck from the register after allegations she hit a crawling patient


A CARER faces being removed from the profession amid allegations that she struck a patient who was crawling on the ground – telling him to “get up.”

Teresita Ty appeared in front of a panel at the Scottish Social Services Council in Dundee tomorrow as part of an ongoing inquiry into her behaviour as a supervisor in a care home for adults.

The hearing started earlier this week

The charges leave the alleged victim of her attack anonymous, using only the the initials AA.

They read: “The Registrant did strike AA with her knee when he was crawling on the floor and whilst doing so, tell him to “get up” or words to that effect and in doing so she did physically abuse AA and did place AA at risk of harm.”

The hearing continues tomorrow.
