I am a CNA and provide one on one care for an elderly man at his home 2 nights a week- his wife also lives there but she is also elderly.He has slight Dementia. Last night he called me into his room 3 times- 2 of those times he had his genitals exposed and made sexual comments- I can deal with that. I told him to stop and I left the room. The other time he actually grabbed my hand and put it on his exposed genitals- he is a big man and stronger then me. I got loose and firmly said to stop and got him to lay back down.His wife got up after that and stayed in the room with me when he had to use the bathroom- I called our after hrs supervisor at 2:30am to see if someone (preferably a man) could cover the rest of the shift due to his sexual behavior. She said "I am not going to call anyone in the middle of the night". Should I quit this client or was I wrong to call and aks for a replacement?
