A north-east care worker has been accused of nipping and shouting at residents under her supervision.
Gail McKinnon will appear before a watchdog on October 9, following claims made against her while she was working as a care assistant at Sunnybank Care Home in Cruden Bay.
The allegations are said to have happened between January 17, 2015 and July 1, 2016.
Ms McKinnon has been accused of shouting at a resident – known only as “AA” – after they asked to be taken upstairs.
She is alleged to have shouted: “You will not speak to me like that. Who do you think you are, speaking to me like that?”
On a separate occasion, it has been claimed she told the resident, in a raised voice, to “shut up”.
A report, by the Scottish Social Services Council, also states that Ms McKinnon said to a resident after a fall: “You do this all the time,” and “You need to stop falling over.”
It is claimed the resident was also told “stop being so stupid”.
While a resident, LL, was eating, Ms McKinnon is said to have made references including “That’s so disgusting” and “That’s minging,” while they were in earshot.
On one day in 2015, after being nipped by a resident, the care assistant is alleged to have nipped them back, saying: “How do you like that, it’s not nice.”
The care assistant has also been accused of flouting rules relating to lifting patients.
On a date unknown to the SSSC, when asked by a colleague to hoist a resident into his chair, Ms McKinnon allegedly said: “I’ll just lift him up.
“I’ll take the roasting.”
On two occasions, she is said to have manually lifted residents when a hoist was required.
In addition, the SSSC says Ms McKinnon discussed the condition of residents on social media with a colleague, known as “WW,” between October 2015 and January 2016.
The report states: “In light of the above, your fitness to practise is impaired because of your misconduct.”
Sunnybank Care Home is run by Meallmore Ltd, who said: “We responded immediately to complaints made in relation to the member of staff and worked closely with the Scottish Social Services Council as part of our investigations.
“The individual concerned is no longer employed by Meallmore Ltd and we await the outcome of the SSSC hearing.
“We take complaints seriously as the safety, security and comfort of all our residents is always our top priority.”
Ms McKinnon will appear for an eight-day hearing at the watchdog’s Dundee headquarters.
