It was alleged Mr Campbell developed an “inappropriate sexual relationship with female patient” while she was in the Struan Ward at MacKinnon House, which is part of Stobhill Hospital, in Mr Campbell was the nurse in charge of night shifts in the bed mixed low security psychiatric unit at the time. NMC panel heard evidence that the relationship developed while the patient in the hospital and escalated after she was discharged. An agent representing Mr Campbell said he maintains his innocence. But the NMC panel, which published its judgment online, found the majority of allegations proven. Mr Campbell was found to have given the patient gifts including a Valentine’s Card and T-shirt with a rude slogan which the patient told the panel made her feel “embarrassed”.

Stuart Andrew, a ward manager at Mexborough’s Montagu Hospital, pulled the hair of two health care assistants from behind and simulated sex on two separate occasions. The Nursing and Midwifery Council Fitness to Practise Committee hearing found him guilty of a string of foul and abusive language which also included crude sexual comments aimed at two members of staff. The NMC found Andrew ‘abused his position of authority and trust’ and his behaviour was ‘sexually motivated and inappropriate’ while the ‘bullying conduct was repeated over many years and caused upset and distress’.

The panel added his misconduct ‘occurred within a clinical setting’ and some of his derogatory comments to staff were ‘overheard by patients’. In a statement, the woman, known only as HCA 1, said: The registrant came up behind me and pulled my hair with such force that I had to grab the drawers in order to balance myself; he then started making sexual movements as if we were having sex. I cannot recall specific dates because it happened often, on a weekly basis.

Musings on traits of professional nurses Friendly Exactly what does being friendly mean? Approachable, if we are not how will we ever make any meaningful relationships with our clients? Pleasant; conjures up connotations of nice and do you remember that character on TV long ago; nice but dim? Not what I want from the people caring for me.

Gracious; someone who is kind and polite, tactful and courteous. So often though friendly implies to us affable, sociable and amiable. Exactly how do we maintain the strength of being friendly but stopping short of making clients are friends as that would be transgressing professional boundaries? A few years ago I remember trying to explain what keeping appropriate professional boundaries meant to a group of new students. One young man was clearly struggling with the concept and kept pushing and pushing and pushing as to what kind of appropriate relationships he could expect to experience with clients.

They met again when he was referred to north-west Shropshire’s Community Mental Health Team in May , when Rogers-Hughes was said to be ‘very flirty’ on special walks organised for patients. They have since blamed each other for instigating their subsequent relationship.

When interviewed by NHS investigators, Rogers-Hughes is said to have openly admitted the affair but insisted the relationship had been consensual and that she only went to the patient’s home because he asked her.

THREE nurses who are among more than a dozen staff suspended from a Co Antrim hospital at the centre of an abuse probe have now been banned from working in the health service for the next 18 months. Mr Houston had been based at Muckamore Abbey hospital in Co Antrim, a regional facility which cares for adults with severe learning disabilities, and which is currently being investigated by police and the NHS following allegations of patients being abused by staff.

It has now emerged that another two Muckamore based nurses, Stephen Nixon and Patrick McAllister, also received month suspensions following two separate hearings between Wednesday and Friday.

Maintaining a professional boundary between you and your patient

Are You a Victim? Or treated unfairly by a clinic or hospital? You may be a victim of patient profiling. Patient profiling is the practice of regarding particular patients as more likely to have certain behaviors or illnesses based on their appearance, race, gender, financial status, or other observable characteristics.

Profiling disproportionately impacts patients with chronic pain, mental illness, the uninsured, and patients of color.

Patients are the nurses’ first priority and their interests are critically important. Whenever nurses engage in professional practice, they are to ensure that their other relationships do not take precedence over their relationships to patients. To do otherwise is to compromise the integrity of the nurse-patient relationship.

Werner Hahn piloted his Messerschmitt Me reconnaissance plane over the port of Bari, in southeastern Italy. Cruising at 23, feet, his aircraft made a telltale contrail as he streaked across the sky, but Allied anti-aircraft crews took little notice. Still unmolested, the German pilot made a second pass over the city before turning north toward home.

Bari was a city of some , people, with an old section of town that dated back to the Middle Ages. Old Bari, clustered on a fist of land that jutted out into the Adriatic, boasted such famed landmarks as the Castello Svevo, a brooding medieval fortress dating to Norman times, and the Basilica San Nicola, which allegedly contained the bones of St. In contrast, new Bari had broad boulevards and modern buildings.

Bari—old and new—had been fortunate, suffering little damage because the Allies had earmarked the city as a major supply port from the start. Tons of supplies were offloaded almost around the clock, transforming the once quiet town into a hive of activity. On December 2, at least 30 Allied ships were crowded into the harbor, packed so tightly they almost touched.

The Americans had championed daylight precision bombing, but the Eighth Air Force in England was suffering terrible casualties in order to prove the theory valid.
