Home Health Care - Animal Control - SS704E
Home Care Workers visit different home environments on a daily basis, and with different environments comes an array of challenges. One of those challenges may be encountering hostile pets. In some situations, when visiting a client, Home Care employees may be threatened, bitten, or otherwise injured by an unrestrained animal. Most animals seem friendly and harmless. Yet, every year in the U.S. animals: Bite millions of people, seriously injure thousands of people and kill about 100 people. Workers can help protect yourself and others by knowing how to recognize the warning signs of aggressive behavior, avoid or prevent an animal attack or how to defend an attack. This program illustrates all of these important techniques.
