A senior carer at a nursing home has been found guilty of drugging dementia patients so she could get a night’s sleep.
Mirela Aionoaei, 37, would put two chairs together and doze off after giving residents pills from her pocket with their orange juice.
She was caught after suspicious colleagues noticed patients becoming drowsy and unsteady on their feet when she was on duty.
They would have to be taken to their beds by wheelchair.
Prosecutor Guy Dilliway-Parry told Harrow crown court her victims “all suffered from mental health conditions that left them vulnerable and unaware of their surroundings.
They could do very little for themselves.
“Some would walk around at night and needed hourly checks, but Aionoaei would put two chairs together and go to sleep, even if the residents were walking around.
“Her priority seemed to be to get some sleep herself.”
Aionoaei, who worked at Ashwood Care Centre in Hayes, West London, was convicted of sedating six elderly residents with anti-insomnia, anti-depressant and anti-psychotic pills between July and December 2010.
She denied the charges but hair samples taken from ¬residents revealed that six of them – four women and two men – had been given ¬sedatives.
Aionoaei, of Hayes, will be sentenced on September 27.
