Professor Stephen Hawking’s Nurse Alleged Serious Misconduct
A year later after the death of Professor Stephen Hawking, his former nurse got suspended from practicing nursing after a secret hearing after accusation of serious misconduct. The scientist’s family filed a complaint against her at 2016, and further reports from NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) suggests that Patricia got suspended in March 2016.
The hearing of Patricia will take place behind closed doors with the presence of the public and the media at NMC, and any details of the allegations are kept away from the public. After the news came out, Patricia said that she cannot comment on any subject and was upset about the matter. She was with Prof. Stephen Hawking’s side caring for him for about 15 years.
In the year 2004, Stephen Hawking’s wife, Elaine Mason got accused of abusing him with ten nurses and taken to the hospital with bruises to his face and lip. However, Stephen and Mason denied the accusations, and there is no evidence if Patricia had any involvement during the incident.
The hearing will likely last until 18th January, and we will have to wait and see what happens next. However, the Director of Fitness to Practice Nursing, Matthew McClelland told that,
“Our legislation and guidance are unambiguous that hearings usually take place in public. “Sometimes there are important reasons – including in this particular case – why we hold hearings in private to protect the interests of all individuals affected.”See Also
