He threatened to talk to the house supervisor because after I got brought him taco bell that he had me go get with his money, he asked me if I was going to feed him. I said sure.
NEVER touch a resident's money, and be careful about doing these little "favors" for them. You could end up losing your job and your certification from that.
Boundaries, boundaries, boundaries.
All it takes is someone claiming you stole his money, and you will be shown the door with no ability to defend yourself.
If residents need / want items that they can't purchase themselves, check with someone in management to see what allowances can be made for the resident. Maybe they can have a staff member serve as a "concierge" for a day where that's their assigned duty to do shopping trips, or maybe a family member or guardian (if applicable) can be notified to take care of the resident's wishes, etc.
But do NOT do things for residents off the clock, no matter how hard it is to say "no" to them. Your job and your professionalism and your licensure/certification have to come first.
