Ok so ive been hearing stories about residents FALSELY accusing CNAs of sexual harassment at the nursing home I work at. I am now literally terrified to do peri care on anyone because im afriaid im gonna get accused of being a freak. If this happens I will lose my job and I know everyone will start to look at me differently, even if I really was just trying to clean them (girlfriend, family members etc.) and im soooo scared. I cant ask another CNA to come watch me do peri care every single time I have to do it. What do I do??? Like today I had to do peri care on a resident and I was going in for a second wipe and he told me "that's enough" and it terrified me and now im afraid he thinks I was being a perv or something when I was only trying to get him clean??? I need tips on how to avoid ruining my life because of false accusations. And if I do get accused, will I get arrested on the spot or what?
I almost want to quit being a CNA because of this no joke
