It is very important a care worker keeps confidentially with the user in order to gain trust, safety and legal requirements. * Discrimination, the service user might not be able to eat bacon for a personal reason, care workers might label these people as ‘abnormal’.
This is not treating the service user properly and being discriminating Duty of care towards adults and children using services, colleagues and own self, requirement to work in best interest of adult or child using the services, care practice which is not harmful to the health wellbeing and safety of the child or adult, carrying out care practice only within own level of ability, role and responsibility
