As a care worker we feel under valued. I love my job but it's not recognised how much we contribute to society. As a care worker we have to deal with being scratched, bitten, spat at, bodily fluids like urine, faeces, blood, saliva, which most of it gets on are arms nearly on a daily basis. I have a lot of scars on my arms, having to go to the hospital because I was bitten on my arm. I've contracted rashes on my arms. With all these viruses and infections going around I feel we should have protection for are arms as it is the most exposed. I love my job and I wouldn't change it for anything else. I love caring for people. But I feel like are injuries are not taken seriously or not seen as a problem. But the employers are not providing us with appropriate PPE for these  situations and there not the ones doing the job WE ARE the care workers doing the jobs they don't want to do! I no I would feel more comfortable in my job if I had PPE for my arms so I could use it if I no I had to deliver care to a patient that may have challenging behaviour. Even when showering/bathing a patient it's pointless using the gloves because water gets straight through it! PPE FOR THE ARMS!!!!!!
