Customer Question
I've been accused of...

I've been accused of patient abuse neglect because I had to raise my voice for a screaming pt. to hear me and when he did hear me, he calmed down and complied. But I got reported for pt. abuse

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?

I am an agency nurse and my contract was cancelled. I did call HR and also reported that my life was threatened by ac0-worker two shifts before that and that I felt the staff wanted me gone

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

I am not union but their regular nurses are. I was full time agency

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I heard they said I left a pt. in urine while he was in seclusion but I have no idea what they are talking about.
