User: Identify ways to ensure that evidence of abuse is preserved.





Weegy: The best way to preserve evidence is to report the matter as quickly as possible. Make a written record of messages (e.g. answer-phone) to ensure they are not lost. Include the date and time and sign them. [ Ensure written records (notes, letters, bank statements, medication records etc.) are kept in a safe place. It is important that the investigator understand what evidence is and its purpose, at what stages of the investigative process it is obtained, and how and by whom it is obtained. Staff must collect evidence in order to conduct a thorough investigation and reach an investigative conclusion. Evidence is defined as, something that makes another thing evident or tends to prove a fact at issue to be true and/or grounds for belief that a fact at issue is true. ]
