Second class care ends nurse career

Second class care ends nurse career

Second class care ends nurse career.Elizabeth Chafwa, aged 30, gave "second class care", it was alleged yesterday.

She was found guilty of five charges of misconduct at a hearing of the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

On one occasion she gave the wrong drug to a patient and twice she failed to record that she had administered warfarin to a patient while she worked at the Aberford Hall Home in Leeds, the NMC heard.

She also failed to record that a patient had been bandaged and failed to ensure patients took their medication, the NMC heard.

An additional accusation was that the nurse spoke inappropriately to a patient.

Liz McAnulty, NMC director of fitness to practise, said: "These offences add up to a catalogue of poor nursing and a poor attitude by Mrs Chafwa towards her patients.

"In order to ensure the public is protected from this second class care, she has been removed from the register."
