Nurse struck off for not investigating abuse allegations


This gives me hope - having suffered abuse for 18mths as the patient of a nurse (who just happened to have done her EN-conversion with the nurse bully whose impact I was being treated for) I reported the abuse. 18 months later, when abuser was named 'nurse of the year' & I found out my complaint had never been investigated, the nurse manager (different one by then to one I'd made complaint to) said 'it was no longer in anyone's interest to investigate'. Who was 'anyone'? Certainly not me, who lives with the knowledge I'm receiving care in a service where abuse is covered up, and with the impact of falsified medical notes (which apparently 'can't be changed if they were written in good faith' (even when there's documentary evidence they're untrue, and current GP/keyworker say 'unrecognisable' as me) and the only way of them being declared 'not written in good faith' is for abuser to admit her abuse???). Maybe if manager's realised the personal implications for them, they might act, rather than avoiding what, I admit, probably wouldn't be a 'fun' task, as cover-up is easier.
