Group of Welsh nurses suspended in records probe
Ten nurses have been suspended from a hospital as part of a police probe into alleged record-keeping anomalies.
The members of staff were suspended from Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend, Wales.
Three nurses were arrested and bailed and a further seven were suspended on suspicion of falsifying records, the hospital said in statement.
All 10 nurses have been suspended, a spokeswoman for the hospital confirmed.
The statement said: “Early in 2013 internal systems within the Princess of Wales Hospital picked up alleged anomalies regarding the record-keeping of a small number of nurses.
“The Health Board notified the police, and a criminal investigation (still ongoing) was then launched. As a result, three nurses were arrested and bailed and a further seven were suspended on suspicion of falsifying records.”
The statement added: “The investigation is ongoing and it would be inappropriate to comment any further at this stage.”
South Wales Police declined to comment.
