UK discharge heartless Zimbabwe nurse

memoryA ZIMBABWEAN nurse who stripped and shouted at an elderly British woman before leaving her standing in full view of other patients has been struck off.  

The Nursing and Midwifery Council heard that Memory Musekiwa, 35, of Walsall, shouted at the weeping pensioner who had wet herself while she was being treated at Worcester Royal Hospital.

 Musekiwa allegedly yelled at the pensioner: “I give you a buzzer and you wet all over the floor, now I've got to clean this mess up.” She stripped her naked in front of other patients, a hearing has been told.

 Memory Musekiwa is accused of pushing the pensioner, who had wet herself, onto a commode in full view and then refusing to wash her.

 The patient, who was in her late seventies, 'cried and cried’ following the incident at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) heard.

 She cannot be named and during the hearing was referred to only as Patient A.

 Musekiwa, from Walsall, West Midlands, shouted, removed the woman's nightdress and then left her with no curtain around her, said Salim Hafejee for the NMC.

 'She then pushed Patient A on to a commode and told her to stay there while she went to get a mop,' he told the panel.

 'When Patient A asked to be washed, she refused and put a clean nightdress on her.' 

He added: 'She failed to appropriately deal with a patient who found herself in a situation where she could not help herself.

 She did not protect this patient's dignity.'

 Fellow patient Julie Owen sobbed as she told the misconduct panel that she had been woken by the elderly woman asking for help that night, before hearing the nurse telling the patient off.

 'Then she took Patient A's nightdress and underwear off and left her standing there while she went to fetch a mop and bucket,' she said.

  The woman was a patient at the Worcestershire Royal Hospital

'At no point were the curtains put around her.

 Her dignity was completely stripped. There was no delicacy. No bowl was brought to wash Patient A with. 

 'There was no cleanliness. She had wet herself and the nurse was putting clean clothes on an unclean body. I clearly heard Patient A say to her "don't be so brutal".

'After the nurse had gone Patient A just sat on her bed and cried and cried.'

 Musekiwa was reported to the NMC after Miss Owen made a complaint at the hospital in Worcester the next day. 

 The nurse is accused of shouting at the elderly woman, failing to promote her dignity, pushing her on to a commode and refusing to wash her. 

 She admits stripping the patient naked without closing the curtains around her in the early hours of November 12 2007, but denies the other charges against her.

 Musekiwa said she was disappointed details of the hearing had leaked to the media after the NMC promised her no journalists would be allowed in the hearings. She denied any wrong-doing but declined an offer to give her side of the story.

 “Those who know me, and I wish you did, know that I am not like that. But there is really no point in me trying to put my side of the story out there. People will believe what they want to believe,” she said.

 She can appeal against the ruling. dailymail uk

I am a Zimbabwean female nurse myself. What Memory did is very bad. Respect, privacy, diginity is what is taught on the first day in college. God knows why she treated this poor woman in such a way and I hope Memory will sit down and reflect on her bahaviour. I think she should apologise to this woman. Have read other people's comments I think Memory need to change her ways. Kneel down and pray ask for forgiveness from God so that you can start your life again.

MEMORY is an evil woman who doesnt care at all. For years another Zimbabwean woman cried as memory destroyed this woman's marriage. l am not suprised she wasn't moved when Patient A cried for help. Mahure ese arikuparadza dzimba dzevanhu, learn a lesson . God answers in his own way.

Another culprit of over working, please all hard working Zimbabweans give your selves time away from your jobs, as a result of stress, it has been scientifically proven that such reactions are common where individuals are constantly working with others without taking enough time off. A lot of people live in denial of the fact that they also get affected mood swings. Accept that stress is not a western sickness, there is only a difference on the level of awareness. To avoid such incidents painful concessions should be taken, i.e money vs healthy working life style. I do sympathize with both victims ( Mutsekiwa and Patient A ) in they respective categories, as for Mutsekiwa I would say she should review her life style because the position she hold deals with the general public who sometime have ambiguous characters.

I understand that it is the society that they grew up in, however they need to change to be like the place they are. Just because it is acceptable thre does not make it acceptable here, which it is not, and she needs to be brought to justice.

Its easy to blame Musekiwa on things like this, but the truth is far deeper than just suggesting that Musekiwa is a uniquely rough Zimbabwean woman.

I left Zimbabwe in 1988 and for the past 15 years I have been trying to marry a Zimbabwean woman in the diaspora. My personal finding was that Zimbabwean women as a result of strict upbringing back home, apply this culture in the diaspora and its making them look out of line.

The rampant use of a sjambock to children in Zimbabwe produces a traumatised nation whose citizens turn to be rough and loudy adults. A child gets beaten dispropotionate ly by parents at the age of four, at school the intoduction is sjambock throughout up to secondary. After school this teenager is still a victim of dispropotionate beating by the police untill they run away to diaspora where life is different.

Once in diaspora, these poor youth find a confusing world and they start to criticise everything that is done differently from Zimbabwean style. They criticise British children who never get beaten but grow up to be intelligent usefully unfrightened nation. They blame the British Police who arrest a thief without asaulting him first as is style in Zimbabwean Police. And as Musekiwa, they find it difficult not to shout at an adault who wet themselvs. Actually in Zimbabwe, this old poor woman could have been asaulted by any nurse and nurses in Zimbabwe do that.

Zimbabwean women in the position of power become extremists, if they are magistrates, they pass sentences that are tough. In boarder posts like beightbridge, never go to a desk that is maned by a Zimbabwean woman. In diaspora once they have money, they rough up man and rough up poor people back home who happen to be their dependents.

Althogh it is not all Zimbabwean women who do this, I personally failed to take a Zimbabwean woman for a wife for being ROUGH. I wish ladies do not take this true comment negative but as a guideline to shape them back into LINE with reality
