The client reported that she was uncomfortable with the employee’s statements, fearful of the employee and did not want to received further services from him. The employee admitted he’s used “vulgar, sexualized language” during a recent in-home session with the client. Green failed to immediately contacted the Agency’s management or adult protective services.
