Royal Sussex A&E nurse who took drugs on duty is struck off

29 January 2019 – Argus

A nurse who filmed herself taking stolen medicines and inhaling laughing gas while on duty has been struck-off.

Helen Smithson worked in A&E at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, and she also filmed a “semi-naked” nurse colleague sitting on a hospital bed, took temazepam and failed to report a stolen syringe of morphine.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council has now banned Miss Smithson, 52, from practising indefinitely.
