UK Nurse Struck Off for Giving Unconscious Patient Tea By Mouth by katty : June 29, 2020, 10:31:19 AM
A nurse has been struck off after a string of blunders while working in a care home, including offering one patient a cup of tea as they were losing consciousness, instead of raising the alarm.

Tsvetanka Miteva worked in Rutland Care Village in Oakham back in 2016. She has since been subject to a fitness and practice hearing from the Nursing and Midwifery Council, which has now delivered its verdict.



The Bulgarian national was also deemed to not have the necessary knowledge of English to carry out her job effectively.

Other complaints against her included her documenting skin tears as ulcers in patient notes, copied what had previously been written in care plans and placing Temazepam in the cupboard of the wrong patient.

On May 20 2016, she attempted to apply a new dressing without removing the dirty dressing. Four days later she did not inform another patient when changing their dressing.

On the same day, when a colleague collapsed, she offered them a cup of tea - while others were trying to put them in the recovery position.

On June 7, she did not properly assess the injuries of a patient after they suffered a fall. She then attempted to get them up from the floor without using a hoist as is required.

Mrs Miteva did not attend the hearing and had "no communication" with the NMC at all throughout the proceedings, despite multiple attempts to contact her
