A tribunal was told how a senior nurse swore at elderly patients and told a pensioner to ring an ambulance instead of telling her she was in pain. Germaine Newton-Hasani allegedly told at least three patients to “shut up” when they complained, and called another a “b****” while she was working at Outer North East London Community Services.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council heard how when colleagues challenged her about her behaviour, she bragged that health bosses “couldn’t touch her”. She now faces a string of allegations relating to her time working there.
Newton-Hasani, who was dismissed for gross misconduct, denies that a letter she wrote to a patient was inappropriate and five other charges against her.
The hearing continues.
