Anger at Failure to Ban Violent Nurse For Life (UK)


Faderera Bello, 55, was a qualified “dementia champion” but was caught on CCTV poking patient Bridget Rees in the face and telling her to “shut up”.
The family of the widow caught the NHS care home nurse’s abuse on camera and she was jailed for four months after admitting ill treatment and wilful neglect.
But Mrs Rees’s family yesterday attacked a decision by the Nursing and Midwifery Council to suspend Bello, which would allow her to care for patients again within a year.
Granddaughter Donna Davis, 36, of Hackney, east London, said: “We are going to keep fighting this. There are thousands of people in the world able to be carers. This one does not need to be back. We want to safeguard other people.
“We feel betrayed. We were told that when she got a light sentence, which was a bit of a kick in the teeth, that she wouldn’t work again.”
Mrs Rees, herself a former NHS nurse, died of pneumonia aged 92 in May – a month before Bello, of Romford, east London, was jailed.
The frail and defenceless pensioner was living in the Mary Seacole Nursing Home, in Hoxton east London, when she suffered the abuse.
Her daughter Veronica Davis, 60, of Hackney, spotted bruising on her mother’s arms and set up a secret spy camera.
Bello, who qualified in Nigeria in 1981, was caught yelling “shut up” and “shut your mouth” repeatedly as she mishandled the pensioner on December 6, 2013.
She was arrested in February last year and jailed for four months at Snaresbrook Crown Court.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council failed to strike her off at a meeting on August 7 and instead suspended her for a year.
A panel will later decide when to allow her to work again.
Bello, who moved to the UK in 2004, blamed stress and said she would deal with the situation better in the future.
