A nurse from a Clapham care home in England has been fired after witnesses reported her for abuse and neglect towards several vulnerable patients. The 53-year-old nurse could lose her nursing license should the Nursing and Midwifery Council rule against her next month.
Osironke Olayinka Olugbile is the nurse at the center of the Clapham care home investigation. She has been accused of several offenses that took place between 2006 and 2011 at the Collingwood Court Nursing Centre. The nurse reportedly turned of the call bell on several occasions, making it so patients had no means of calling for help in case of emergency. Additionally, she has been accused of barricading “troublesome” patients in their rooms so they wouldn’t bother her. She also forced patients to wear several layers of incontinence pads so they would not disturb her by needing to use the restroom or be changed. She also made a habit of inviting male friends to the care facility for late-night dates, during which time she would yell at any patient that disturbed her.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council will make their decision in February. It is anticipated that the woman will lose her nursing license given her lack of remorse, risk of repetition and dangerousness of the charges.
