Instructions for this assessment task:
Step 1. Read the below case study and highlight/take notes of the important information.
The following case study is based on a true event that happened recently in Australia. The names and some details have been changed to maintain confidentiality of those involved.
A Nursing and Midwifery Board Australia (NMBA) disciplinary tribunal has cancelled a nurse’s registration after the nurse received over $100,000 from an aged care patient. Over a three year period, James Drever (nurse) breached legal and ethical standards when was over-involved with, and inappropriately received money from, aged care resident Hazel Jones.
Mr Drever received the money in various forms over the three year period including accepting a transfer of a car into his name purchased by Ms Jones; cash; use of Ms Jones’ bank cards; and accepting payment for education, flights and tickets to sporting matches.
For a period of five months, Ms Jones unsuccessfully attempted to recover her money from Mr Drever. Once the aged care facility where Mr Drever was employed became aware of what he had done, he was released from his position and reported to the NMBA. During this time, Mr Drever repeatedly contacted Ms Jones with a view of having the notification against him withdrawn.
The disciplinary tribunal ordered that Mr Drever be reprimanded; have his registration cancelled; be disqualified from applying for registration as a health practitioner until 2024; and is prohibited from providing health care services until 2024.
