Sacked Barrow midwife guilty of misconduct but fit to continue working
Last updated at 14:59, Thursday, 30 January 2014
A MIDWIFE sacked from Barrow hospital has been found guilty of misconduct in two cases where babies died but has been deemed fit to continue working.
• Barrow hospital midwife trial day two - Manager ‘laughed’ at midwife when she raised staffing fears
• Barrow hospital midwife trial day one - accused over babies’ deaths tells of unit’s ‘turmoil’
Tim Skelton chairman of a panel sitting at the The Nursing and Midwifery Council, Old Bailey, London, today said Jennifer Emma Bowns was not a risk to the public.
He said: “The panel found that your failures put patients at unwarranted risk of harm and you brought the profession into disrepute.
“The misconduct involved record keeping for both Patient A and B.
“Overall this amounted to misconduct.
"It cannot be excluded that there could have been a different outcome if your failures had not occurred.”

Have your say
How has she been allowed to carry on working. She was involved with two cases where babies died and she has been found guilty. This is outrageous.
