    Thank you so much for your answer. I pray my administrator sees this point of view. I do my best to provide the best care I possibly can. As one of the others said, I should've changed the patient myself; I have done that many times. In my experience in that facility, myself and one of the managers are the ONLY ones that don't mind getting our hands dirty. I change, give showers and bed bathes all the time to help my aides. Once a CNA always a CNA, and I don't mind the work. I just wish administrator backed me up to understand that I had only good intentions for my patient. My intention was not to allow her to fall even though that is what happened. Family backs me up and still THANKS me for taking care of it right away. I stayed 4 hours after my shift to get xrays done and waited for results yo come in to keep family updated. I would be caring if I just left my shift wether patient was taken care of after or no. Again, thank you for your response.
    You may not mind providing personal care, but your original post doesn't sound like it, and if events were described to management the same way, they possibly think the same thing.
    You stated you took the resident to her room because she was wet, left her alone to look for an aide, then proceeded to help the aide pass out trays so she would have time to change the resident, while also taking care of dietary complaints.
    Honestly, every decision you made from the time you removed the resident to her room was a poor one.

    Several years ago, I worked with a nurse who accidentally hung TPN on a pt. intended for someone else (both had it ordered). When she realized her mistake, she took the TPN down and rehung it on the person it belonged to
    She was also known to run out of rooms if a pt. coded cause it scared her so bad-think everyone running into the room with a crash cart as she is running out Did I mention she was one of our charge nurses??
