A VIOLENT carer turned up to work drunk and shouted abuse at disabled residents.

Convicted domestic abuser Marcus Ward was employed as a support worker with young adults with learning difficulties when his booze-fuelled rants started.

In December 2015, he went to work at the Beechmount residential home in Johnstone while he was drunk.

A colleague stepped in to challenge him and he stated: "I can do what I want in my f***ing time off.

" I'm f***ing sick off this. Get me a taxi."

Ward also said in front of residents, who are young adults with learning disabilities, that he was "f***ing drunk" and added: "I'm f***ing sick of this and I'm going home."

A week later, on December 21, he was asked to take a service user on an outing, and he replied: " I would not take my f***ing dog out in that."

He also raised his voice at a vulnerable client and told them to "sit down and eat your lunch."

On the same day he again stated his frustrations for his workplace by saying he had "had enough of this f***ing place".

The following year on September 9, he was sentenced after being convicted of domestic assault.

Ward was ordered to pay a £450 fine after assaulting a woman in Elderslie, throttle her and repeatedly hit her on the body, and hit on her head.

The attack happened on May 4, 2016.

Ward's conduct was discussed before the Scottish Social Services Council, who have now decided to strike him off the register for social service workers.

In their ruling, social care bosses said: " Being convicted for a crime of violence calls into questions your suitability to work as a social service worker as it demonstrates that you are willing to place other people at risk of harm.

"Your actions caused injury to another person.

" They also have the potential to negatively affect the reputation of the social services profession and breached the trust and confidence placed in you by users of services, your employer and the SSSC."

The panel also ruled that he had shown a "pattern of behaviour" while at work which put residents and colleagues at risk.

They said: "By attending work under the influence of alcohol you were unable or at risk of being unable to perform your duties to the required standards of competence, alertness and safety, placing residents, colleagues and others at risk of harm.

"You breached the trust and confidence placed in you by residents and your employer by attempting to carry out duties when professional judgment could have been impaired.

"Residents have the right to expect that they will be treated with dignity and respect and protected from harm by social service workers in the environment that is their home.

"Swearing in the presence of residents and raising your voice to a resident caused, or was likely to cause, distress, fear and alarm to these residents placing them at risk of harm."
