Question and answer
how a social care worker might gain the consent of a service user to have a bath
A social worker might gain consent from an individual by verbally or written confirmation, [ by asking questions by giving choices. If a social worker is unable to get consent due to the individual not being able to express themselves due to mental illness or lack of mental capacity or because they are terminally ill then consent may be obtained by asking their family or next of kin. If the
individual has got the mental capacity to speak for themselves but they refuse then the worker could try to encourage them and let them know the benefits of allowing the worker to assist them. ]
