JOZI: NURSE SUSPENDED OVER NHS DIRECT BLUNDER


CLECKHEATON, WEST YORKSHIRE

A nurse who called NHS Direct when a dying patient stopped breathing has been suspended for two months.

Winifred Jozi was the sole nurse on duty during a night shift at Holme House Nursing Home in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire when the elderly woman died.

At 5.45am on 5 December the patient was still alive when a healthcare assistant checked on her, describing her as ‘normal, content.’

Only 35 minutes later Jozi was called to his room when a different assistant found her ‘sleeping too well’, and cold and non-responsive to touch, the Nursing and Midwifery Council heard.

It was alleged that the ophthalmologist unhooked the patient’s bra ‘before she knew what was happening’ and asked if she wanted him to look ‘down there’.

But a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service panel found that the examination was clinically justified and cleared Dr Pacheco Bravo of any ‘sexually motivated’ behaviour.
