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.
