Nurse struck off for slapping colleague with dead trout

It's not a Monty Python sketch. Details: here.

Also struck off: "a nurse who put a patient's glass eye in a ward sister's drink."

Shhh...listen. Do you hear that sound?

That's Dr. Crippen, tapping at his keyboard...polishing his post about these nurses...

And some of this stuff was happening in 2003? I feel bad for the patients that were exposed to this nurse.

Hi Shrinkette

Yes, well, it cetainly caught my eye. And you are right, it is pure Monty Python. And I did head straight from the keyboard. Trouble is, as you know, I usually start from the town of lampoon, where I mainly live.....and how can you go further than the picture of one nurse hitting another with a dead fish? What a joy. What a pleasure. But I fear it is quite beyond piss-take, even for me.

No, I have been pounding away at ADHD and the current conspiracy to poison our children.

I started today's artice by searching your site for something on it, but did not find anything. I guess you don't do kiddies. Mind you, Big Pharma would have you believe that most adults need Ritalin as well. It's coming, Shrinkette, it's coming, so be prepared.

What I did find, whilst scratching around you blog, was Pat Santy. How had I missed her before? This is the joy of blogs, of course, there is just so much good stuff out there.

What's the penalty for slapping a patient with a live trout?

BTW, I've added you to my blogroll. Great stuff!

best,

Apparently you only get punished in the news for abusing colleagues... anything with patients either goes or isn't news worthy.

What the heck is a dead trout doing in the office? I hate to think that someone saved the evidence.

A glass eye in someone's drink? That sounds more like a frat or sorority prank...not the prank of an adult in the work place. And I'm with Bardiac...what IS a dead trout doing on the ward? There must be a JHACO guideline about that!

Maybe the trout was dinner?? In which case here in America it would have been called a food fight!!!!! ummmm I can kinda relate to that...... I used to work in a slaughter house and the foreman there wore rubber pants with suspenders that had a big gap in the back. He was accustomed to other people throwing paper towels in there. This guy had a reputation as a real bad ass and had annoyed me more than once. So one day I had my trimmer save me some of the cow's eyeballs and slid them gently one at a time into the back of his pants. after there were several in there I gave his pants a slight tug as he went by and he reached in thinking it was a paper towel. He gave a small shriek and large shudder and threw them across the plant. Mr. tough didnt look so tough and I was giggling hysterically...... and yes I was in a professional position. I was a Federal Inspector
