For some reason these charges are a constant threat for nursing home and hospice employees. Yes you should consent to a meeting with the police and take an attorney with you. Doing nothing is an invitation to having charges filed because they will assume that you are hiding something. If there is footage, the police will have it and your attorney may be able to view it before any criminal case is filed.

First off, and I can't be sure you did in this written request for information on-line, you should stop making statements that might appear to be admissions of guilt. Secondly, you should not meet with a police officer without first talking with and then taking a lawyer with you. If the police have a video and other evidence of your guilt, then charges will be and probably would have been filed by now. The police are very good at getting a person to admit to a crime, whether the person actually is admitting or not. Don't go without a lawyer. Good luck.

Do not talk to law enforcement without counsel. When you are under suspicion, the police are NOT your friends nor are they your allies. They want you to make it easier to arrest you, not help you.
