A nurse who was having an affair with a patient joked that she would have to fit him with an oxygen mask while they had sex, the Nursing and Midwifery Council has heard.
The council found Rebecca Bayliss, 29, guilty of conducting a sexual relationship with a patient after she made the remark to work colleagues.
The man, a cystic fibrosis sufferer who was awaiting a heart and lung transplant, had a three-month affair with the nurse after they met at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital.
Bayliss boasted of the relationship on Facebook, according to the Daily Mirror, and carried on contacting the man after she was banned from seeing him.
He told the council that he “could have done without the stress”, according to the newspaper.
