An Auckland nurse who failed to undertake checks on “young and vulnerable” patients and give them their medication has had her registration cancelled for three years, Newshub reports. The New Zealand Health Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal issued several charges against the now-former Starship Hospital nurse, who has name suppression, and ruled her conduct wasn’t a “one-off” or temporary judgement lapse. The nurse’s colleagues presented evidence to the tribunal, describing how the nurse wouldn’t visit wards nor leave the nurses station.
