A Nurse Is Suspended
Kellett, John M.

A day hospital sister was suspended and given a final formal warning for obeying the request of her consultant to give a patient tranquillising medication in disguise. Though a disciplinary inquiry exonerated the consultant, the action on the nurse has not been rescinded. This case questions the authority of the multidisciplinary team and the role of nursing managers. We asked two geriatricians and forensic scientists to comment on the case.
