Former Four Seasons nurse struck off for neglect


A nurse who worked at a former Four Seasons home has been struck off for neglecting residents and falsifying a care plan.

The charges against Marissa Bambao related to her employment at Avonmead care home in Devizes, Wiltshire in October 2015.

When asked to turn an elderly, diabetic woman, Ms Bambao admitted saying: “I am not going to reposition her, if I wake her up she will be ring ring ringing for the rest of the night.”

She was also found to have falsely recorded that the resident had refused to be turned and failed to change the bedding of another elderly person.

Four Seasons announced the closure of Avonmead, which cared for 34 residents, in December 2016 after it had been told to improve by the CQC.

A Four Seasons spokesperson said: “When colleagues raised concerns about the conduct of the nurse, the Home Manager reported them to the authorities and the team at the home cooperated in  the NMC disciplinary process.

“We have an active whistle blowing policy that encourages residents, relatives or staff to raise any concerns they have about any aspect of care or conduct and these are always followed up.

“We are grateful for the vigilance of the members of the care team. The overwhelming majority of care workers do a demanding job exceptionally well day after day and it is disappointing when there are exceptions who let down their colleagues and the people in their care.”
