Weegy: Abuse can take many forms, including sexual, mental, and physical, and it can happen in many places, eg, in the home, in hospital, and in the workplace. [ If someone alleges they are being abused, some of the actions you should take include : ?Stay calm and listen to them, ?Take what you are being told seriously, ?Be aware that medical evidence might be needed, ?Offer them support to help them to stop the abuse happening, ?make a written note of what you have been told and ?contact social services or the police. ]

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. ]
