CASE STUDY: ‘’Martin is a registered mental health nurse and has been working in an acute mental health ward in an inner London NHS Trust since he qualified 12 months ago. He works regularly with Evelin, a Junior Mental Health Nurse who qualified a year before Martin and considers her his friend. A month ago, Martin noticed that Evelin had begun to treat everyone in an off-hand way. Martin did not mind for himself but began to worry about the effect on the service users on the ward. Martin heard Evelin shout at some of the service users on the ward and one day he found out that Evelin has been giving unprescribed Lorazepam 1mg tablets to an agitated and confused elder female service user who was recently admitted to the ward for an assessment for memory problems and confusion. When asked, Evelin responded that the psychiatrist would prescribe it soon anyway and that she was just giving everyone a bit of peace on the ward. A few nights later the service user woke up at 2 am in a state of confusion, asking where she was and was talking loudly. Martin saw Evelin pushing her aggressively back to her bed, followed by a loud scream and immediate crying coming from the patient’s area. Martin went to investigate and asked if everything was OK and saw the service user was on the floor. He assisted the service user to bed and said to Evelin that they should report the fall and call the duty doctor to come and review the service user but Evelin said no, the service user is fine and there is no need to call the doctor. However, Evelin 2 agreed with Martin to complete the patient’s incident form together later when the ward was less busy. The ward was very busy that night and they both forgot to complete the service user’s incident form and did not document the fall in the patient’s medical notes. The following day one of the doctors that Martin knew from the MDT meeting was visiting the ward and Martin mentioned to him that he was worried that a colleague was being aggressive with service users. The doctor advised Martin to report the observations to the hospital managers and highlighted that confidential advice is also available from his trade union. At first, Martin was unsure whether he could talk to his line manager or the hospital managers, who were friendly with Evelin, and was worried about what would happen if his concerns were seen as unfounded and if other colleagues took sides with Evelin and stood against him. He liked working there and hoped to stay on the ward for a couple of years. After much contemplation, Martin reported his observations of Evelin’s conduct to the hospital managers’’.
