I am experiencing difficulties with carers at the moment. I keep getting messages at work to tell me that Jean is on the rampage and that they are fearful for their safety. So they pack in and leave the house. I just wondered if anyone had experience of a patient physically attacking a carer and rendering them unfit for work. Would I be liable for compensation, loss of earnings etc if this ocurred? I do not think that my home insurance would cover this but am about to make enquiries, carefully as I do not want my premiums to shoot up to an unacceptable level.
