Scenario Related Question


  1. This conduct is not acceptable because the outcomes related to it can have bad effects on the child who is mishandled. The child can be traumatized, or be physically injured.

  1. In the Victorian Child Wellbeing and Safety Act of 2005, No. 83 of 2005 (p.9), it is stated that those who provide service to children to children and families should:

Protect the children rights as much as possible, respect their identity, and be responsible for their needs. Moreover, they should make intervening decisions between the child and family and ensure timely provision of services. They should also cooperate with professionals.

  1. The legal responsibilities that as an employee I am entitled under this legislation is

  1. The director of this institution is responsible for making decisions concerning any intervention between the child and the family in a timely manner such that if he/she delays, they may have effect on the child. Still, he/she should also let the family know the various services that their child needs together with the benefits attached to such a service.

  2. The National legislation relating to this scenario that guides it is Section 356 of the Children and Young People act of 2008. This act captures a number of people including the employers or the employees who should report any physical abuse or sexual abuse which justifies my action.

Under this legislation, the first thing I can do is to confirm whether the child has been physically injured and is in need of medical attention. I would also seek to stop the staff member just in case he/she continues smacking the child and inquire why he or she has done so. I will confirm I witnessed the act by recording it and reporting the action.

  1. I would document this incident as physical abuse and record it in the school records of acts against children wellbeing.

Still, I will inform the security staff within the school to keep watch. I will also report at the local police station of a strange person watching the children suspiciously.

  1. Following children’s services accident emergency procedures

In case I noticed a Xavier fall at the slide area and get injured, I will rush to the area and inspect the intensity of the injury while consoling the child. I will then take him to the first aid room and give the necessary aid within my reach and call the ambulance or rush him to hospital for more medical actions.

I will also record the information in the school accidents and injuries’ book just in case further information may be needed on the nature of the accident.

To minimise the chances of accidents happening again, I will make sure that always there is a person near where children are to warn them against unsupervised acts. Still, I will enclose the playing areas such that children can only go there with an educator accompanying them.

  1. Implementing infection prevention and control strategies

If a baby has vomited in her cot, I will take the following procedure

I will also remove that cot and the beddings and take them to a safe place for disinfecting and cleaning. I will also clean and disinfect the bathroom and all the equipment that was used to clean him/her. I will also seek immediate medical attention for the baby.
