Sex with pa­tient nurse struck off

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A MEN­TAL health nurse who had a sex­ual re­la­tion­ship with a pa­tient in her care, be­fore bom­bard­ing him with texts when he dumped her, has been struck off.

Deb­o­rah Boul­ton met a male pa­tient at the Suther­land Cen­tre for peo­ple with poor men­tal health in Stoke-on-Trent, in 2009, send­ing him mes­sages say­ing “I miss you” and “I love you”.

A Nurs­ing and Mid­wifery Coun­cil hear­ing heard dur­ing their re­la­tion­ship the pair had sex five times – once in a ho­tel, once in his mother’s house and three times in Boul­ton’s house.

The nurse’s ac­tions fell “se­ri­ously short of the con­duct and stan­dards expected of a nurse”, the tri­bunal ruled, say­ing her abil­ity to prac­tice is im­paired by rea­son of her mis­con­duct.
