Okay, youve acknowledged your mistake (I assume a dosing error) and should tell your manager this. I'd suggest drawing up a plan on how to reduce this risk and liking to explain this to the manager and the daughter if possible. Human error is inevitable and show you intend to reduce the risk.
Apologise to the patient, forget the daughter, say to the patient how sorry you are and that you miscounted in error, and theres no long term damage. Also that you've spoken to the manager.
Either the manager goes to bat with you, or more likely he will try to pin it on individual errors. If so then yes, he may sack you. Sorry.
If that happens, make sure you say to people that you were asked to administer medication unsupervised and that rather than fix the error, the boss just fired you. If you know anyone working for the agency, warn them.
What happens when a person gets sacked? since i am relitevely new to the job role(i have never been a carer before) what will happen to me? will i still be able to get another job as a carer, in the care sector or any other jobs irrelelevant to care work.
... and the ones that won't
