Wirral care home nurse who gave out wrong doses suspended
A nurse who gave incorrect doses of medication to a patient and falsely recorded it has been kept suspended a decade on from the incident.
Ruth Patten gave the wrong dose of painkillers to a resident and made false records In July 2013, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) said.
Ms Patten has been sanctioned by the NMC for the eighth time since then.
The nurse originally claimed she completed the tasks correctly at Benham Care Home in Bromborough, Wirral.
She was first suspended by the NMC after charges against her were found proven in 2015.
Ms Patten had sought to return to the care profession but a fresh 12-month suspension was ordered.
