Secret filming nurse struck off by NMC

A nurse can be struck off by the NMC for following “the behest of the filmmakers … rather than her obligations as a nurse”, and yet there are so many occasions when a nurse “follows the behest of a Care Home Provider” resulting in serious neglect of residents – and on occasion, death – in a  Care Home with nursing, but no action is taken against the nurse in question?  Or against all the other ‘bodies’ like SS, Local Authority, and even the Care Home Provider.

Margaret Haywood deserves an Honour, not the sack.

She did her job to perfection, by protecting and supporting the health of individual patients.  Shame on you, Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Update: I was delighted to learn that Margaret Haywood was reinstated.
