A NURSE of more than 30 years has been struck off after carrying out an invasive procedure on a 4-year-old disabled child. Christine Megan Kirby-Rose was caring for the youngster, who has cerebal palsy, while working for Scope in Cornwall.
The charity, which supports disabled people and their families, operates out of eight centres across the county. The Nursing and Midwifery Council struck off the nurse in her absence following a hearing in London earlier this month. (JAN 2012)
Neither the NMC or Scope would say where the nurse was from or where in Cornwall she had been working at the time of the incident. It found the nurse, who registered in 1981 and as a midwife in 1983, had not followed correct procedure which could have harmed the child.
