Did I do the right thing

  1. Today I spoke with my don regarding concerns about a staff member. Last friday my shift ended as usual at 2300-The next shift leader, myself and a co-worker were seated at a table. A man fell out of his chair and onto the floor. The team leader said "Leave Him". I walked over to the man-checked him for injuries. The next day I saw the incident form. The team leader had logged the incident time wrongly. You could see clearly the true time had been covered over. Also the contents was untrue. Did I do the right thing. Patient safety was my concern and because the time she logged in indicates it happened on my shift. I am afraid she will retaliate physically. I thought during handover with this person that I would have a co-worker present.

    I feel like you did the right thing. If you feel physically threatened by her have another coworker with you. If she does assault you CALL THE POLICE and press charges. also discuss this with your DON and express your concern.

    Maybe the patient can remember the time he felt and can support your case.
