Struck off: Nurse who threatened to kill boss
A NURSE who had threatened to chop a clinic manager into ‘little pieces’ and bury her in the ground has been struck off.
Margaret Amao told her manager Kathleen Booth she would pour a patient’s urine sample over her and poke her eyes out.
Ms Booth said she has needed counselling since the argument in July, 2009, which happened after Amao refused to test a pregnant woman’s urine for infection.
Patients in the waiting room at the Cumberland Medical Centre in Plaistow, east London, complained after the incident, the Nursing and Midwifery Council heard.
Ms Booth had told the panel she had felt ‘very distressed and frightened’ when Amao started shouting at her after asking her if she would carry out the urine check.
Ms Booth said: “She shouted at me, ‘I can do what I want, I don’t care’.
“She continued shouting as she said, ‘I will kill you, see what I will do to you, I will cut you up into little pieces and bury the pieces in the ground’.”
Amao denied the allegations at the central London hearing but her fitness to practice was found to be impaired by reason of her misconduct and she was struck off.
