MIDWIFE WHO KEPT SHODDY RECORDS AT SCANDAL HOSPITAL KEEPS JOB

BARROW-IN-FURNESS, CUMBRIA A senior midwife who kept shoddy records in cases where two babies died at a scandal-hit hospital can return to work - despite being found guilty of serious misconduct. Jennifer Bowns put patients at an 'unwarranted risk of harm' at the Furness General Hospital, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria. Last month a health service ombudsman review found that midwives' failings were not investigated by the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust, which runs the hospital. Bowns faced a misconduct hearing at the Nursing and Midwifery Council over the standard of care she provided to two mothers and their babies who later died.

DINNIGAN: NURSE CLEARED OF USING RACIALLY MOTIVATED LANGUAGE

SHEFFIELD A nurse was cleared today (Thurs) of using racially motivated language after a tribunal found her comments about relocating foreign workers were 'framed as a question'. Beverley Dinnigan was accused of saying 'there is a law or a policy somewhere saying that the British staff keep their jobs first' after she found out operating theatre staff at Northern General Hospital in Sheffield were to be redeployed. Dinnigan also faced an allegation that she later told theatre nurses: 'They should be looking at the overseas nurses, why should British people be losing our jobs, when we have people on permits working here.' But a Nursing and Midwifery Council tribunal cleared the nurse of being racially motivated after they found that she had asked about her right to a job in a meeting.
