A former Care UK care worker has been sanctioned for refusing to help a resident and shouting colleagues.

Lubinska-Jaszczak was given a warning on her registration for up to 24 months and ordered to write a reflective account on her conduct during her employment at Tor-Na-Dee Care Home in Milltimber, Aberdeen.

The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) found that on or around May 23 and 24 2017, while working as a care assistant, Ms Jaszczak refused to help a resident to go to the toilet and told a colleague that the resident “should urinate in her pad”.

Ms Jaszczak was also found to have shouted at a colleague and told them she preferred using her phone than supporting a resident.

A Care UK spokesperson said:  “We expect our colleagues to display the highest standards of care and courtesy and will not tolerate this kind of behaviour.  As soon as the matter was reported in May 2017, Ms Lubinska-Jaszczak went through a disciplinary procedure and was dismissed from our employment.

“This is a well-run home rated by the Care Inspectorate as good in all areas and we want to reassure everyone that this was an isolated incident in a home that enjoys positive ratings from residents and their families.”
