Nun Olimma was accused of telling a patient: ‘Why don’t you just die. Nobody wants you here, just die, die, die’ while working as a care home nurse at Roseway House, a home for elderly dementia patients in Jarrow, Tyne and Wear.
During the same day, Olimma barked at the patient: "Why don’t you take the medication you stupid woman?"
Olimma's colleague and healthcare assistant Louise Brennan told the Nursing and Midwifery Council that Olimma had told another resident with dementia "You perspire too much, you stink of urine and faeces" before washing them aggressively.
On the grounds of these charges, the NMC panel gave Nun Olimma a 12-month suspension order and warning saying: "We considered a striking order disproportionate at this time."
