Former nurse at Helen House on patient charges
6:30am Tuesday 7th January 2014 in News
A NURSE told an autistic patient she was “going to get it” and kissed her on the lips, a hearing was told yesterday.
Lucy Hasker was overheard using ‘strong language’ when she took the girl, referred to as patient C, for a horse riding lesson, it was said.
Patient C was left distressed after Hasker allegedly told her: “When you get back to the new house you're going to get it.”
Hasker, who was partly employed by the East Oxford children and young adults’ hospice and partly by a trust set up by patient C’s parents, is also accused of telling her “You have been naughty. I am on tonight and you are going to get it.”
She is also charged with failing to demonstrate the skills, knowledge and judgement required to work as a nurse without supervision during her employment at the East Oxford.
Hasker admitted failing to make a record of receiving the drug Fentanyl Abstral on December 20, 2009.
She also admitted failing to administer four drugs to a patient at the hospice and administering a drug without prescription in 2010.
A further allegation that she was not able to co-ordinate a shift on multiple occasions was also admitted by Hasker.
All the allegations of inappropriate behaviour relating to Patient C were denied.
Hasker was dismissed from Helen and Douglas House on March 21, 2012, following an investigation into her conduct.
The hearing, at the Old Bailey in London, continues.
