I'm feeling awful and thinking about leaving the medical field?

Anonymous
So I work 10 PM to 630 am in a nursing home night shift.

I checked on this resident at 10:30 and they were in bed, then we did rounds and I checked on that resident again at 12:10 am since we do every 2 hour checks and they were on the floor. They climbed out. I am feeling awful. I know I should've done her on rounds but they have COVID so I was waiting a little later to do them. Like am i gonna lose my license? Am I gonna be charged? I have no clue how long they were laying there, but we got them up and laying in bed. They are okay, I'm so glad they are doing better. But was it my fault?
