Nurse had sex with patient
Mental health nurse struck off for having sex with patient | Nursing Times
A NURSE who went drinking with vulnerable patients from a hospital acute mental health unit, and then had sex with one of them, has been reprimanded but allowed to keep nursing. The nurse, who has not been named in a tribunal decision, was dobbed in by her house mate, who saw one of the patients, who had previously been suicidal, at their home in Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal heard on at least six occasions the nurse had been assigned to care for the patient with whom she later had sex. The patient, called AB, had been admitted to the acute mental health unit after a siege in which he attempted to self-harm and had expressed suicidal thoughts. On November 18, , AB, who had that day been released from hospital, and another patient she had nursed, BC, invited the nurse to BC's home for a drink. That night she and the two ex-patients consumed drinks together and the next day the nurse went back to BC's home, where she stayed overnight and had sex with AB. On the following day, the patient AB went to the nurse's home, where they went to bed together but did not have sex.
Alec Wallbank, 33, had been cleared of the charge by a jury at a crown court trial last year. The panel found all allegations against Mr Wallbank proved. The panel heard Mr Wallbank, of Pontypridd, had flirted with and kissed Patient A while she was admitted to the ward under section 2 of the Mental Health Act. Following her discharge, he visited Patient A in a hotel room and had sex with her. After he tried to end the relationship, Patient A attempted to kill herself by taking a drug overdose.
A hearing is set for Wednesday to consider an appeal filed by Van Brunt, who calls the discipline a "miscarriage of justice," according to The Oklahoman. Van Brunt, of Shawnee, located east of Oklahoma City, worked in a program at Angelic Family Hospice that provided nursing care for patients at their homes. The patient, who attempted suicide in March, two days after Van Brunt told him in a text message that she was pregnant by another man, died in May. According to Van Brunt's attorney, she had a consensual relationship with the patient - a year-old terminally ill man suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease.
