Nurse Caught On Camera Dragging A Frail Elderly Woman To A Urine-Stained Bed Has Been Eliminated


A nurse caught on secret camera dragging a frail elderly woman through a nursing home before dumping her on a urine-stained bed has been struck from the nursing record.

Mamello Herring was filmed ‘lifting’ Angelina Lanera, 85, through Claremont House Care Home, Halifax, reports YorkshireLive.

The camera had been hidden in her room by Angelina’s son after he suspected she was being mistreated.

Shocking footage shows Angelina screaming and crying as Herring, along with caregiver Maria Jackson, pushed the elderly woman onto her bed with her underwear around her ankles.

Today, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) stripped Herring of her license and barred her from practicing for 18 months.

The decision came a year after Herring was previously sentenced to an 18-month community injunction and ordered by a Bradford Crown Court judge to perform 250 hours of unpaid work last year.

The 56-year-old did not attend the NMC hearing, but it took just two days for a panel to deliver its verdict.

The panel heard how Angelina was “physically frail, had limited mobility, suffered from dementia, psychosis and was partially blind.”

He used a walker and needed the help of two staff members to get to the bathroom.

“She also required careful and calm explanations when interventions were made,” the report says.

But on December 1, 2018, Angelina was subjected to vile treatment at the hands of Herring and Jackson.

The couple pulled Angelina across the floor using a ‘crawl lift’ technique while lifting her under the armpits. The practice is banned as it often causes injury, but it didn’t stop the two staff members from subjecting Angelina to the humiliating act.

She was then left on her bed, covered in urine.

A day later, Michael went to visit his mother and found her shivering and cold.

He reviewed the video footage from the camera, which he had hidden under his desk, and discovered the horrific images.

Angelina sadly passed away a year after the horrendous act and Michael told YorkshireLive the incident was like “hell”. It even left him in need of counseling.

He also insisted that the sentences imposed on Herring and Jackson should have been much harsher.

“They should be forced to clean the most disgusting toilet with crap with a toothbrush,” he said last year.

“That would be my just punishment.”

Speaking after the NMC verdict on Thursday January 27, he added: “Justice has been served.

“I’m happy that she has been punished for what she has done and happy that she can’t do this to anyone else.

“Anyone who puts your name in a search engine will see it.

“It will keep me from doing this to other people.”

Before the hearing, Herring presented evidence to the NMC investigation in which he admitted that his actions were “totally unacceptable and reprehensible”, but added that he was under a great deal of stress.

But the panel said the incident was “a serious violation of the standards expected of a registered nurse.”

They also found that Herring had been involved in a previous incident in 2013 when she lifted a patient from the floor to her bed after a fall and then failed to call emergency services, check on the patient or document what happened.

“If Herring were allowed to return to practice without restriction, he would pose a risk to the health, safety and welfare of the public,” the report added.

“The nature of his conviction is of the most serious nature and raises fundamental concerns about Herring’s professionalism.”

Herring, Rossefield Place, Bramley, had worked at the nursing home since 2014 but has now been banned from working with children or vulnerable adults.
