Banned Worker Found Guilty of Care Home Abuse

A care home nurse who dragged a screaming resident to bed by their hair and left pensioners fully clothed overnight so that she didn’t have to dress them the next morning has been struck off.

Osironke Olugbile, 53, worked at the BUPA run Collingwood Court Nursing Centre in Clapham, south London.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council found that Osironke Olugbile’s actions amounted to “serious abuse”.

Olugbile also turned off call bells preventing residents from seeking help.

THE NMC went on to comment ‘’The panel is of the view that you demonstrated deep-seated attitudinal and personality issues and a complete lack of insight into your failings.

‘Your overall failure to accept responsibility and accountability for the patients in your care, despite being the nurse in charge and being a role model for your colleagues was a serious concern to the panel.

‘The panel noted that you have not shown any remorse or regret.

‘You have denied these charges from the beginning and have sought to blame others and accuse them of lying.

‘You have sought to abdicate yourself from any personal responsibility for your actions.’

Olugbile worked at the Collingwood Nursing Centre for five years from 2006 to 2011.
