A patient has decided to accuse me of leaving her on the toilet for 2 hours. This is the situation. I was working at a new facility and wasn’t familiar with the patients at all. It was coming towards the end of my shift. I let the nurse and my partner know that I was leaving and told them to have a good day. On my way walking out to my car I noticed a patient's oxygen cord being pulled under the door. I stopped and knocked on the bathroom door, helped the patient pull the oxygen cord into the bathroom, the patient was already on the toilet. The patient said thank you, I said no problem, pull your light when you're ready, and I walked out. So, she is cognitive. She knows how to pull her call light, and was put onto the toilet by another aide. But I am the one being investigated when I really just wanted to help her get her oxygen. I’ve never been accused of neglect or abuse in any way and I’ve done this work for 8 years. I’m not sure where to go from here. Keep in mind that according to witnesses, she couldn’t have been on the toilet for more than 20 minutes. Which is a long time if it’s true. But she said that it was 2 hours and obviously that was a lie. From what I’ve heard, this resident accuses people all the time of random things. I would never hurt any of the people I care for. I would definitely never leave them on the toilet for 2 hours. If she was a fall risk or someone I had to be concerned about then I would have stayed in the bathroom with her and got her off of the toilet.
