I'm being investigated for dependent adult abuse from today. I work in an AL facility as a med aide..please help.
Earlier today I was administering medications to an elderly man and he asked me if I was going to ----- for him. Since he has made odd comments like this before, I kind of shrugged it off and said no. He said he was going to go get ready to take a shower, and he went into his bathroom. I went to go collect his garbage from his bedroom and he came into the bedroom, without clothes, and told me that he wanted me to get on his bed so that he could have --- with me. I told him to move out of the doorway because he was blocking me. He tried to get closer to me and I told him to let me out. He came closer to me and I pushed him and he fell onto his bed and then onto the floor. I ran out of his apartment crying and shaking and went to get help. I made sure that the man was okay and left. I went to get my coworker, she told me to call my manager and RN... I did so, now the state is investigating me and I'm suspended. I was just trying to protect myself and thought he was going to hurt me.
