When one thinks of the nursing profession the usual images that spring to mind are on caring angels whose purpose is to help others.
Not so when you think about 42-year-old nursing assistant Corena Briley, who has just been jailed for 12 months for stealing.
Briley is the latest inductee into the ‘200 Weeks Scum of the Week Hall of Fame’. One thing which tends to knit together the previous celebrants of my award is their devious ability to prey on society’s most vulnerable. Judge Michael Stokes told Nottingham Crown Court: “It is difficult to imaging a more serious breach of trust.”
Briley worked at Nottingham’s city hospital & tended to patients dying of cancer. That & helping herself to cash, bank cards & otherĂ‚Â personalĂ‚Â effects from theĂ‚Â patients’ property. She was convicted of nine charges of theft & fraud.
