LAVIS:MIDWIFE SUSPENDED FOR CATALOGUE OF BLUNDERS

CHELMSFORD, ESSEX A former deputy director of nursing has been suspended for four months for providing poor care during a delivery which ended in the tragic death of a newborn baby. Midwife Penny Lavis failed to perform adequate checks on both the mother and child during the birth at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex. A panel of the Nursing and Midwifery Council found Lavis performed an artificial rupture of the foetal membranes to break the waters when it was not clinically necessary. Lavis, deputy director of nursing at Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust (MEHT) from 2000-2001, claimed it was at the mother's request and she had written this in her notes. The panel found Lavis had only told the mother, who was having her first child, that the procedure would speed up labour while not properly explaining the risks.
