Midwife Threw Milk Over Crying Baby And Said 'That's For Being Sick on Me'

Joanne Scott told the infant 'That's for throwing up on me'






A Gateshead midwife who poured milk over a distressed baby's
head and said 'that's for throwing up on me' could face being struck
off.











Joanne Scott was working a night shift at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, in 2008 when the tot became unsettled.

She went over to calm it down but then took a photograph of the
infant saying she would send it to her husband and her daughter because
they would find it 'funny', the Nursing and Midwifery Council heard.

Scott was found guilty of then pouring milk over the infant but cleared of handling it roughly in the same incident.

Fellow midwife Julia Parvia said: "Joanne had her mobile phone in her hand and proceeded to take a photo of the baby.

"She said she was going to take a photo for her husband and daughter because they would find it funny.

"I expressed shock and disgust at her actions and asked her to give the baby back.

"I told her she was too rough with the baby. She became aggressive and walked out.

"Joanne returned with a bottle of milk for the baby.

"The bottle had no teat on it and without warning she poured it over
the baby's head and said word to the effect of 'That's for throwing up
on me'.

"I was still holding the baby when she did this, I was sitting on the
chair and she came towards me while I was sitting with the baby.

"Whether the bottle was emptied, I don't know.

"But there was enough milk to go on the baby's face, on its nose, and on its clothes - enough for me to take it and clean it up.

"It can't have been an accident because of what she said.

"Regardless of the amount, it was thrown on the baby.

"It was enough to make the baby gasp."

Scott was also found guilty of swearing at a patient's father after
he expressed his fears over what to do during his wife's labour on
October 11, 2010.

She asked him: "Did you nearly s*** yourself? It's because you're f***ing useless."

Scott insisted she had built a rapport with the couple and was she
only joking but the NMC panel ruled her language was inappropriate,

She also argued that some of the allegations were made against her as part of a conspiracy.

James Daniell, NMC panel chairman, said: "The panel is not satisfied there was a conspiracy against you (Scott).

"The witness had attended your hen party that year and may not have
realised she would face disciplinary action but she would have known she
was going to be heavily criticised.

"Though your husband or daughter never saw the photo, it does not
mean that you would not have shown them in future. The comments to the
husband of the mother were inappropriate.

"You said you had a bit of banter with the mother and her husband and
you admitted swearing at the patient but not the words in the
allegation.

"The mother also did not lodge any complaint but the fact you did use swear words means this charge is found proved."

Scott admitted breaching professional boundaries by befriending on Facebook a mother who had just given birth at the hospital.

She also admitted using her mobile phone to take a photo of another
baby, referred to as 'Baby C,' when specialist camera equipment was
available on 18 October 2010.

Baby C was suffering from a condition that meant it was half one
colour and half another - Scott claimed she had to show the
paediatrician.

But the midwife did not get consent from the mother and did not write
any notes in the medical records about showing the photo to a
paediatrician.

The photo was then not deleted in a 'prompt manner' from her mobile phone.

Scott was dismissed following a disciplinary in November 2010 but has
since been reinstated following a lengthy disciplinary and
rehabilitation process.

The midwife currently is not allowed to work night shifts and is not
allowed to mentor any students at the hospital, which are the conditions
the NMC have upheld.

Scott continues to deny her fitness to practice is not impaired and awaits a decision on her future.

The hearing has been adjourned to 21 October 2013.

If found guilty of misconduct she could still be thrown out of the profession.

Having just become a Grandma (did I say?!!!) I have to say my recent experience with midwives at two local hospitals has been exemplary. We really could not have had better care for my daughter or the baby.

I am all for second chances but this woman is accused of several offences and her behaviour shows a lack of empathy for families in a vulnerable situation, appalling standards of care for a tiny and helpless baby, and an overall bad attitude. The NMC should not wait until October to sack this woman; she is not worthy to be part of such an amazing profession.

Slightly OT but....Don't you just hate it when after feeding them milk & they look really contented they chuck it back up at you in preferably in the we small hours & it slides down your chest from the gap at the top of your jarmies.....the warm feeling you get inside, priceless.

This is pretty shocking, and she is definitely in the wrong profession. We had the same midwife for all of our three kids, and we admired her so much that my daughters middle name is named after her..

Sadly in every profession there are bad apples, however its also easy for people to snap, make mistakes, get it wrong.

In many jobs a snap, error or bad day can do little harm, nursing is one profession when you just cant take a chance, a moments snap could be life threatening.

Sadly, it was obviously not an isolated incident.

there's a bit more on here..

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

A midwife poured milk over a distressed baby's face and said 'that's for throwing up on me', a hearing was told today.
Joanne Scott also photographed the child on her mobile phone because her husband and daughter would 'find it funny', it is claimed.
Scott was working a night shift at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, in 2008 when the baby became unsettled.
She went over to calm it down but then took a photograph, the Nursing and Midwifery Council heard.
Derek Zeitlin, for the NMC, said: 'When questioned about it by her colleague, told her that she would send it to her husband and her daughter who would find it funny.
'The baby was in quite an unsettled state and the registrant took the baby rather roughly in her hands and as a result of that the baby was sick over her.
'Scott's colleague put the baby back and remonstrated with the registrant about the rough handling and took the baby in her arms.
'The registrant went away and came back with a bottle of milk which her colleague saw without a teat on it.
'Scott poured that over the baby, saying "that's for throwing up on me."'
The other member of staff was at first afraid to say anything as she was a junior and only reported the incident a few months later.
Scott is also accused of swearing at the husband of a woman giving birth on October 11, 2010. The midwife had previously sent the mother home after claiming that she was not in labour.
Mr Zeitlin continued: 'The upshot of that was that when the mother did eventually give birth she did so in the ambulance taking her back to the hospital.
'Her husband was with her at the time and he was very scared as to what was going on.

  • NHS hires record number of Spanish and Portuguese nurses while refusing Britons because of slashed training budgets

'When they arrived at the hospital there was a conversation which took place between the father and the registrant, part of which was overheard by a colleague.
'The father explained that he was very scared and she had no idea why he was scared because she had explained what he had to do when they got home.
'She made the comment "did you nearly sh*t yourself" and after a reply by him, "that is because you're f***ing useless."'

Scott was working a night shift at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, in 2008
The same month Scott breached professional boundaries by befriending on Facebook a mother who had just given birth at the hospital, it is claimed.
On 18 October 2010 Scott used her mobile phone to take a photo of another baby, referred to as Baby C, when there was specialist camera equipment available, it is alleged.
Baby C was suffering from a condition that meant it was half one colour and half another and Scott claimed she had to show the paediatrician.
But the midwife did not get consent from the mother and did not write any notes in the medical records about showing the photo to a paediatrician.
The photo was then not deleted in a 'prompt manner' from her mobile phone.
The midwife admits adding a mother as a friend on Facebook and all charges against her relating to Baby C.


She also admits swearing at the husband of a mother in labour once but denies saying 'that's because you're f***ing useless'.


Scott denies all the other charges and claims her fitness to practice has not been impaired. If found guilty of misconduct she could be thrown out of the profession. The hearing continues.
