A former Northwick Park nurse who was accused to have beaten a vulnerable patient and drugged him while off duty has been exonerated by nursing chiefs.
Allison Maria Simon, who was alleged to have strangled, shaken, kicked, flicked and pushed an unnamed patient’ has been cleared of wrongdoing by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
The allegations go back to November 2011 when she worked in the Fletcher Ward of the hospital in Watford Road, Sudbury.
In addition, no evidence was found suggesting Ms Simon, who has been a registered nurse since 2002, should not have administered anti psychotic drug, haloperidol, to the patient while off duty, even though the patient wasn’t assigned to her care.
Ms Simon, who no longer works at the hospital, had an interim condition of practice order filed against her, restricting her from carrying out her usual duties while the investigation is ongoing, including constant supervision by another registered nurse.
