They always have to take it seriously. And it's a full on investigation - with witness statements, skin checks, and maybe being sent home while the investigation takes place. Last time they visited us they investigated a dementia patient that had her 'purse' stolen. A purse she hadn't had in some 7 years... And then there is the impatient lady who insists on getting her blood sugar checked at the desk daily - because she has to get to breakfast on time (and the doors aren't even open yet - but don't dare argue!) (You are supposed to do it in private.) She told the investigators "I don't know why they 'make' me do it here." I could go on and on... They don't live in the real world and are often not very nice. I sympathize!

#29 your comment reminds me of the movie "Gothika." if the police investigated this incident any further i would understand, because someone can easily take advantage of an older woman who suffers from dementia.

Sure the police will look for any signs of abuse and maybe correlate that to OP's work hours. But they wont base any charges on the testimony of a dementia patient.

Not remembering that you beat up this patient in the past (i.e. thinking this is the first time you've seen her) is a sign that you're suffering from dementia.

Co workers usually know what certain residents are like. It's just management and inspection people that no grasp of the real situation on the floor.

True story I once walked through a nursing home, and there was this lady with no arms and no legs SCREAMING at the top of her lungs. I was like WTF???

That was a cool story right? You want I should say again?

It's 5:39 am ok? Give me a break. Besides not everyone has the same taste, what you find annoying (because you don't get perhaps) someone else will find entertaining.

Peace and love.

Thank you for clearing up the acne problem! :-P I was just about to do the same thing! It's good to see I'm not the only one who's on the ball today!
