Thanks so much Tweety. I have a lawyer through my hospital. Their are many other people involve in this. It was my patient, but I was not present when she fell in front of the other nurse.
Good luck. Remember it's a deposition, not a judge and jury trial where you are brought up on any charges. They just want a statement of the facts. Your hospital's lawyer should be good enough at this point. Although, as was mentioned above you should take heed she/he has the hospital's interests at heart. However, in protecting the hospital, defending you and the others is in their best interest.
Most depositions lead no where in the long run. They may "settle out of court" if there is no documentation that the patient should have been on fall precautions or was a fall risk, because they don't have a leg to stand on. It might help to bone up on what your hospitals fall precautions are.
Lawsuits around falls are a dime a dozen. If we all went down for every patient fall, we'd all be out of a job.
Again, if you don't remember, saying "I don't remember" is the truth. Just stick to the truth and the facts, no matter how it makes you or the hospital look.
