NC Department of Public Safety

A girl who is known to make false allegations about staff tells you that she was touched last night by a staff member and that she cant take it anymore living at the facility, what would you do.

2 Answers

That's a PREA complaint and no matter how many false allegations she's made they all have to be taken seriously so you separate her and the staff member and call your supervisor to make the complaint. Afterwards you ask her specifically if she's suicidal and if yes you have to place her on watch in a pretty much empty room. You contact your supervisor to make her aware of what's going on and that she needs to see a license psychologist or psychiatrist immediately. Less

Investigate the situation. Have her questioned by a licensed professional.
