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.”
