Ethical Lessons From the 'Undercover Nurse': Implications for Practice and Leadership
Journal of medical ethics 2010 Aug; 36(8): 469-72
The case of Margaret Haywood, the 'undercover nurse', is a significant one for the UK's National Health Service (NHS). She investigated complaints made about the Royal Sussex County Hospital and covertly filmed inpatients experiencing care detrimental to their health. The material was subsequently broadcast on the BBC's Panorama programme. It caused a scandal and brought about changes at the hospital, as well a demand for greater clinical leadership. Margaret Haywood was, however, struck off the nursing register for breaching confidentiality and because of the methods she used to blow the whistle.
