I had a call from the police yesterday asking me to go to the police station next week for a taped interview regarding a disabled woman I was looking after that received bruising in my care. She banged her head a couple of times whist I was on the toilet so had a bruise on her head but had bruising from the previous day when another carer was looking after her. I was told the interview is nothing to worry about but I can have a solicitor.

Hi I can't talk on the phone at the moment I can tomorrow if that's ok. Im just really worried as working with this woman for 32 hours could ruin my career when I haven't done anything wrong
Sure. If you havent done anything then you do not need to worry. If she banged her head a couple of times that is what you need to say.It would be for the Police to show that this was an unlawful assault. I assume the disabled person will say that you didnt do it on purpose?But you do not need to worry, if the person just banged their head - that is nor your fault.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex

The lady can't talk but the other carer hasn't had a call only me. But she had bruises from the previous day when I wasn't looking after her and she had a fractured hip from a fall she had the previous day with the other carer.
Ok - well it wasnt you, all you can say is what happened. You cant be convicted of something you didnt do.You can also take a Solicitor or ask for the Duty one if you wish.Dont worry - you didnt do anything and you have a good 10 years historyDoes that clarify?Alex
