Mr. Jones is a 45-year-old gentleman who suffered from a traumatic brain injury. He requires assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), but is mobile once he is dressed and in his wheelchair. During the lunch hour, the nurse positioned Mr. Jones’s wheelchair in the direction of the dining room. The nurse went to help other residents and returned after a bit to catch a glimpse of Mr. Jones wheeling himself in a different direction. The nurse redirected his wheelchair by turning it back toward the dining room. The pair repeated the same actions several times, until the nurse became frustrated and grabbed Mr. Jones, then shook him, leaving bruises on Mr. Jones’s shoulders.
