Care home nurses struck off after ‘neglect led to patient deaths’ By Helen Mooney – Nursing Times

Three nurses have been struck off the Nursing and Midwifery Council register for poor care which in some cases led to patient deaths at a nursing home in south Wales.

After an 81-day hearing, an NMC panel found that failings by a total of five nurses at the Brithdir Nursing Home in Caerphilly amounted to misconduct. Nurses Tembakazi Moyana, Daphne Richards and Rachel Tanta were struck off on Friday. Susan Greening received a caution order and Beverley Mock was suspended for one year. The NMC panel cleared one nurse, Rachel Pritchard, of all charges relating to misconduct.

In May, a disciplinary panel found 86 failings proven out of an alleged 150 against the six nurses in relation to nine residents between 2004 and 2006.  Amongst other charges they related to poor management of patients’ pressure sores and record keeping.
