A NURSE who showed his co-workers indecent videos has been suspended.

George Mall, who was manager at the now-closed Irene House Care Home in Worthing, was suspended from practising for four months after a string of sexual harassment allegations.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council has now ruled that Mr Mall showed at least two co-workers indecent videos.

A female colleague said she was expecting Mall to show her video of his new grandchild only to be “shocked and disgusted” by the video of a man she presumed was Mall having sex.

On a second occasion he was giving the same woman a lift in his car when he pulled over and showed her a video of his penis.

He also showed a least one of the videos to another female co-worker a panel of the NMC heard.

On other occasions he used offensive language to female co-works and told one she “looked sexy”.

The NMC also found that Mall had blocked a male co-worker against the wall of the home with his car and shouted at another colleague who questioned the type of juice he was giving patients.

He also repeatedly lifted up a male colleague’s top to expose his stomach.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council found Mall had brought the profession into disrepute with his actions, which took palace between September 2012 and June 2013.

They said: “Nurses occupy a position of privilege and trust in society and are expected at all times to be professional and to maintain professional boundaries. Patients and their families must be able to trust nurses with their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

“To justify that trust, nurses must be honest and open and act with integrity.

“They must make sure that their conduct at all times justifies both their patients’ and the public’s trust in the profession.”

The panel concluded it had no choice but to suspend Mall because his actions were too serious to simply put conditions on him continuing to work and because he had not “developed full insight” into his actions.

It added: “Placing of conditions on your registration would not adequately address the seriousness of this case, would not protect the public and would not declare and maintain the standards and confidence in the profession and the NMC as its regulator.

“The panel is of the view that there are no practical or workable conditions that could be formulated, given the nature of the charges in this case.”

Guild Care, which ran Irene House, took the decision to close it last January, saying it could not afford to modernise. Residents were moved to other homes.

No patients at Irene House were harmed by Mall’s behaviour.
