I am a nurse's aid at a state psychiatric hospital and have recently been falsely accused of patient abuse. Allegedly I hit the patient twice in the face and kicked him in the groin. I was working with this girl, I asked her for her help at 1:30pm and at around 3:00 she started crying and reported me to our director of nursing. I was kept, removed from work and the police interviewed me and asked what happened. They also told me that this girl said I was drinking. The police also asked me if I was willing to do a breathalyzer I said yes but they has to drive me to another police station. So I told them I dont have time so they gave me that stand on one leg say your abc bid. They said there is no signs of abuse on the patient. I might be facing physical assault charges.
obviously this person is going to testify, does her allegations have any bearing, I have a clean record and have a good character morale at work, and fairly involved in recent fight againt closing our hospital. She's a temp at my job and I have been working there for about 7 years. Also, can i possibly have a slander case against this person for her false allegation?
