I was recently let go from a term care facility. To start

I was recently let go from a long term care facility. To start from the beginning i was by myself in the dining room with 10 other residents (6 out of 10) i got up and dressed. Also all 10 breakfast. Luckily the other 9 were sleeping. I was the only PCA on as we are severely understaffed. We have one resident who is food obsessed and is constantly taking food off other clients' plates. I was assisting another resident with eating when this person came over and asked for more food. I went over to table acknowledged it was empty and said i would get more food. Another muffin or donut. I took the empty plate and was on my way to kitchen so i could keep up with dishes and grab the donut or muffin at same time. This person chased me "yelling thats my plate dont take that !" she proceeded to grab out of my hand. Another staff(RCA) came around corner to see what was going on. At that time i put my hand on one of res arm and took plate back. (It happened fast and i was completely unaware it even occurred) I grabbed the donut and handed it to res. I proceed to rinse off dishes. The witness(not a superior- a RCA) 15-20 min later came back and asked to see me in coference room. That is when she told me she saw me put my hand on a resident, and i was being sent home. Also to write a statement. This was 9:30am on Sunday. Again i didnt even realize i had done it it all happened very quickly. Monday morning i received a call from a superior saying i was suspended until Wednesday when i would fill out a discipline paper and would go into my file. I said i understood what i did was wrong and yes i will see them on Wednesday. Well Wednesday morning i received a call from same superior who says that there are bruises on both arms and on a palm of hand. He told me under the circumstances i was being let go. I said for one there was a witness i only touched one arm and there is no way i could have left that amount of bruises. He replied "i know but under the circumstances ". I felt i was let go on circumstantial evidence/ coincidence/ timing of bruises and not on absolutely without a doubt proof. I will be recieving a letter from them within a few days. This is in the state of maine . any thoughts on where i stand? Thank you , apologize for the length.

Obviously employees after they are let go are mad, just because I have hired and let go 4 of 5 employees over the last 10 years is their any issue with letting a employee go?
