Nurse suspended for two years after attempting to steal a cannula during hospital night shift

She and a nurse friend planned to use the cannula to administer a beauty drip to 'whiten skin', tribunal hears.

A nurse who was suspended for two years under emergency powers after stealing cannula equipment during a hospital night shift has been given the green light to return to work.

Back in June 2019, the Filipino-trained nurse had placed bungs, cannulas and saline ampules in her handbag to administer to herself a so-called Glutanex Drip — a vitamin and beauty product widely used in the Philippines to whiten the skin.
