After two senior nurses from Stafford Hospital were struck off after being found guilty of misconduct, the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, tweeted:
Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust has said it will consider the decision of the nursing regulator to strike off a nurse - who is still employed by the trust.
Tracy White is one of two nurses at scandal-hit Stafford Hospital that have been struck of the nursing register today, after being found guilty of misconduct.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council ruled that Ms White's fitness to practice was impaired after she refused to help a senior nurse undress an elderly patient and called her a "naughty little monkey" for not taking drugs to treat constipation.
It also found that in relation to a patient who had attended A&E following a termination, Ms White said words to the effect of: "she can wait, if you can do that to your baby".
Between July 2000 and July 2010, the nurse also inaccurately recorded patient discharge times from A&E, and ordered other colleagues to follow her example, the panel found.
In February 2013, a public inquiry found that failings at Stafford Hospital contributed to the deaths of hundreds of patients.
Its chair, Robert Francis QC, said there had been a "failure of the NHS system at every level" and made 290 recommendations in his 1,782 page report.
The report strongly criticised local health authorities and the trust board, but it did not blame any one individual or organisation.
