Nurses Allegedly Drugged Stroke Unit Patients

Two nurses are on trial for allegedly medicating people in order to sedate them and make them quiet and easier to manage. They are also alleged to use medication as a form of 'punishment' when a patient and/or their family irritated them. A student nurse raised concerns ultimately leading to the arrest of the nurses.

More details are in this news story. Any staff concerned about similar practices in their area can make a safeguarding referral or go direct to the police.
