Drug nurse expelled.

Byline: By Wales on Sunday

A nurse who gave a patient twice the dose of a powerful sedative has been struck off.

Jacqueline Wilde, who worked at Altbridge Care Home in Whitford, Flintshire, also kept sloppy records of the drugs she had given to patients.

Wilde was found to have failed to accurately account for giving two patients the sedative Diazepam and failing to record the reasons for administering Lorazepam, also a sedative, to another.

She gave another patient, referred to only as 'resident G,' one milligram of Lorazepam instead of half. All the incidents occurred in 2005.

The panel heard the patient could have been harmed by the nurse's behaviour, which she never admitted or apologised for.

In a written statement the panel said: "We find that the registrant is guilty of misconduct and that her fitness to practice is impaired. In reaching this decision we have been mindful of the guidance contained in the NMC's Code of Professional Conduct."
