Dublin Male Nurse contacted young patient after taking mobile number and address from her file


Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...A male nurse who contacted a female patient on social media was found guilty of professional misconduct today.
Gilbert Hategekimana was an agency nurse at the Mater hospital in Dublin on October 3, 2015, when the student teacher presented at the hospital’s Emergency Department.
During the Nursing and Midwifery Board’s fitness to practice inquiry he admitted he took the mobile phone number and address from her patient file. He then sent her messages, rang her and sent her a friend request via Facebook.
Hategekimana was also found guilty of non-compliance with the professional code of conduct. Sanctions will be determined later.
The student, 24, referred to as Patient A, remained in hospital for several days with issues relating to Type 1 diabetes.
On October 14, 2015, she attended an appointment at the Diabetes Day Centre at the Mater, and was in the waiting room when she received a WhatsApp message from Hategekimana.
He texted her: “How are you?” Patient A didn’t recognise the number, but she knew him from the profile picture.
Wanting to confirm whether it was him, she replied: “Fine. Who is this?”
Hategekimana replied: “Gilbert. Remember me in Mater Emergency?”

Patient A told a nurse about the messages and met the patient liaison officer.
On October 20, 2015, she received a WhatsApp message from Hategekimana, which said: “I’m so sorry from the bottom of my heart. I didn’t mean to hurt you.”
The same day, Patient A received a friend request from the nurse via Facebook and, a few moments later, received a call from a number she didn’t recognised. A friend rang the number back and put it on speaker, and Patient A recognised the voice of the person who answered as that of Hategekimana.
In evidence, which she gave via Skype, Patient A said the nurse spoke with her “a little bit” on October 3, 2015.
She said: “He never asked me for my personal details. I felt very frightened and confused as to why he would be texting me. I felt my privacy had been breached and violated.
“I never expected this. I felt quite vulnerable and I felt like I was left with loads of questions.”
Patient A said after she received the friend request on Facebook and phone call from the nurse she felt even more violated at this stage “because then I knew he had my full name.
She added: “I was afraid he would come to my address. He was so persistent. I felt scared.”
Hategekimana’s counsel Femi Daniyan, BL, told Patient A his client wished to sincerely apologise for his actions.
He added: “I’m saying sorry on his behalf. He appreciates that what he has done is completely wrong. He’s realised his mistake and commits to it not happening again.”

Nigerian Man Kills Girlfriend's Son For Misplacing Trainers

39-year-old Marvyn Iheanacho, who reportedly flew into rage and killed his girlfriend's 5-year-old son, Alex Malcolm, in Mountsfield park in Catford, south-east London, after he lost one of his trainers, has been arraigned in court.

Witnesses who testified in court said they heard a “child’s fearful voice saying sorry”, 

loud banging, and a man screaming about the loss of a shoe during a violent assault on the evening of 20 November, 2016.

It was gathered that Alex Malcolm died as a result of the fatal head and stomach injuries he sustained from the incident.

“The prosecution say that he died at the hands of this defendant, a man who was looking after him, acting as his stepfather, but who on the afternoon/early evening of November 20 last year, lost his temper and violently assaulted the boy, causing him fatal head and stomach injures,” said the prosecutor, Eleanor Laws QC.

A jury of seven men and five women heard he was in a relationship with Alex’s mother, Lilya Breha, and would often stay at her flat in Catford. One witness, Sarah Strugnell, allegedly saw Iheanacho bend down to the child and ask where his shoes were.
“The man was very angry indeed and Sarah Strugnell describes how he was raging at the child who was very quiet,” said the prosecutor.

Judge Mark Dennis QC told jurors the main issue in the case is how Alex sustained those injuries and said the trial will last between two and three weeks. The trial continues.

Update! Police - 'Evans is safe in our custody'

The Nigeria police force has denied media reports that notorious kidnapper, Evans, has vanished from police cell. Earlier today, The Sun Newspaper published a report alleging that the kidnapper who was arrested on June 10th in Lagos, was no longer in Lagos police custody and his whereabouts was no longer known.

Denying the reports, the Force spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood who spoke to newsmen this morning, said;

“The media need to avoid stories that could create fear, tension or misrepresentation among the masses. Where did Evans vanish to? That headline was misleading. The suspect and his accomplices are very much in our custody. We are working hard to ensure that justice is served at the end of the day. There are certain information that are not for public consumption to avoid jeopardising investigation or even national security. Evans is with the police. His whereabouts is known but cannot be made public. We are appealing to Nigerians to remain calm and support the police to conclude its investigation.”he said
