‘Leering’ senior nurse, 41, who made ‘constant’ sexually explicit comments at younger women and told trainee her bottom looked ‘amazing’ is struck off
A senior nurse has been struck off for harassing female colleagues after telling a trainee her bottom looked ‘amazing’.
Zimbabwean national Alfred Muvheni Mavurayi, 41, based in Kettering, Northamptonshire, ‘constantly’ made sexually explicit comments and ‘leered’ at younger women, a Nursing and Midwifery Council tribunal heard.
He asked a colleague if she would spend the night with him in a hotel after a staff awards evening and made the trainee nurse whose behind he commented on feel like a ‘piece of meat’ by staring at her, the committee was told.
Colleagues told the tribunal that although the psychiatric care unit manager behaved ‘shy’ and ‘like a teenage boy’ in front of women he often became ‘very graphic’ behind their backs.
The mental health nurse had excused his behaviour as ‘harmless banter’, but has now been struck off after the NMC tribunal ruled his behaviour as a senior member of staff was ‘deplorable’.
