Psychiatric nurse struck off for 'inappropriate' relationships


A psychiatric nurse, Jayne Reed, 47, who dubbed herself “mummy bear” during a three-in-a-bed incident with patients, has been struck off by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Both patients – a 46-year-old man with alcohol problems and an 18-year-old girl with a history of self harm – had previously been admitted to her wards at the Newtown Hospital in Worcestershire.

Striking Ms Reed off the nursing register, NMC panel chair Catherine Duthie said: “The only person who gained gratification from the inappropriate relationship was the registrant.”

  • Does this woman not know her boundaries both morally and professionaly! Good she has been struck off...

  • well it is good to see that the Nursing and midwifery council is prepared to act appropriately when necessary. Perhaps there is a place for ms Reed to ply her trade but not on our psychiatric wards.

  • People like Ms Reed should never be allowed a vulnerable person again, she is sick and perverse.
    I just hope the two patients involved whose self esteem will already be pretty low can move forward from this horrible womans behaviour. Ms Reed is a disgrace to the nursing profession.
