    Great. Also we need to fight to ensure IHSS does NOT deny hours for special cases where hospital staff are violating Penal Code 368, by failing to protect clients that are protective supervision cases. In these cases parents have had to personally guard and protect or privately send IHSS staff INTO hosptial to guard and protect them from being killed or neglected by hospital staff. This is a reality that seems to escape the minds of those in charge of cuts. Under no circumstance shall a IHSS recipient be expected to recevie sub-standard care in a hospital because of the failure of hospital to secure proper SITTER or NURSES to handle protective supervision of such IHSS client. Just because they leave home doesn’t mean they don’t need the same standard of care in any other setting, especially a setting that is unfamiliar and dangerous,w here they will be medicated or restrained against their will if someone isn’t there to PROTECT them. It works both ways baby. You don’t protect the patient and you are in violation of Penal Code 368 by knowing this IHSS client needs protection, and NOT allowing the IHSS caregivers to give this protection in an emergency out of home hospital setting. The IHSS worker should be allowed to provide this protection in this special circumstance.
