    if you saw it from a local perspective she was not liked as she changed who the ward ran when she became incharge.. i.e made the lazy nurses work as from what I understand she was very much a hands on manager and expected others to be as well... and before you know it she on an attempted murder charge... seems like she wasnt wanted on the ward and this is just vindictiveness which has escalated out of control.

    I have just read this piece, I have got to say that this is where the barbara salisbury case should be dicussed, as she is obviously a victim of extremely vindictive false accusations by collegues, and is now having to suffer a prison term for these evil allegations.

    I have got to say I totally agree with JudithWA... you obviously have been following the case very carefully and have seen it for what it really is!



    I have been following this case through the media coverage both nationally and locally to that area.

    I understand from this that there was a ward battle going on, one of the key witnesses in the case actually admitted in court that he has lied on his police statement in which he accused this nurse of laying a patient flat to die.. as it turns out she was not even on shift when the alleged offence occured... you tell me thats not vindictiveness.

    I understand that all the patients were either DNR or were in for TLC only.
    In the two cases she has been convicted of the drugs were prescribed by doctors and was the minimal starting doses of diamorphine... I dont know about elsewhere in the world but here there has to be two people to administor diamorphine and each one is accountable for that administration. In the NMC code of conduct it says that each nurse is accountable for their own actions and to say that another member of staff pushed you into giving the drug is no form of defence... yet this is what is reported to have happened in court.. nurses were saying she bullied them... well sorry thats no defence as far as I am concerned... they are just as liable as her and should be serving this sentance with her.

    Also in the media coverage it has said that no nurses reported what they see to be attempts at killing patients, to anyone at the time it happened.... whatever happened to clinical incident forms?... or speaking to managers... the whole thing stinks of bullying, and bullying which has gone to the extremes.

    Why has this nurse been jailed? what has she done wrong?

    I have been reading this thread and it seems as though a lot of you are jumping to conclusions about this nurse.

    Gwenith and Mattsmom81 could be disturbingly accurate about what has happened.
