Struck off: Nurse who threat­ened to kill boss

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
