Allison Maria Simon has been accused of mistreating the unnamed man on the Fletcher Ward back in 2011.
The Nurse and Midwifery Council heard claims the Ms Simon allegedly strangled, shook, kicked, flicked and pushed the patient onto his bed.
She is also accused of administering an anti psychotic drug, haloperidol, to the patient while off duty, even though the patient wasn’t assigned to her care.
