A nurse working at Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust who allegedly ‘pressurised’ a colleague to support her ‘dishonest actions’ is to face a disciplinary hearing next week.

Cherry Anne Sangco is set to appear before the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) on July 27.

Ms Sangco faces five misconduct charges which allegedly took place in February 2014.

She is accused of breaking the Trust’s break policy by allowing two members of staff to take a break at the same time and letting staff to take a one and a half hour break.

She is also accused of ‘not adequately monitoring’ a patient sitting a on ‘chair with wheels’ and not accurately recording the circumstances surrounding the patient’s fall in the Datix incident report – an alleged action the NMC said was ‘dishonest’.

Ms Sangco is also accused of sending one or more text messages to a colleague ‘pressurising her to support the version of events detailed in the Datix incident report’.

Western Sussex Hospials NHS Foundation Trust, which runs St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester and Worthing Hospital, has been approached for comment.
