Photo from Courier article
"A mental health nurse who “abused her position of trust” has been struck off after a misconduct hearing found her guilty of ... pushing 88-year-old widow Betty Farley against a wall and holding her there, and causing or allowing her to fall to the ground."

" ... I still feel NHS Fife have let my mum down because, technicality or not, I don’t think she (nurse) should ever have been allowed back into a hospital"

"She was also found guilty of a charge which stated that while employed on Stratheden’s Radernie Ward, on August 29 2011, she administered a bisacodyl suppository to another patient referred to as Patient A when it had not been prescribed for the patient. She also failed to record the error in that patient’s notes."
