Termination of employee found guilty violating patient escort procedures, being late for work, falsifying timesheets, and failing to arrive on time for assignments
OATH Index No. 2088/15

A community liaison worker at Bellevue Hospital was charged with violating patient escort procedures, being late for work, falsifying timesheets, and failing to arrive on time for assignments.

OATH Administrative Law Judge Kara J. Miller sustained the charges. Evidence showed that the employee had violated patient escort procedures on three occasions by leaving patients unescorted at locations outside the facility; violated the hospital's lateness policy and in one instance, falsified her time sheet to indicate she had arrived to work on time.

ALJ Miller recommended termination of employment.
