A nurse who was found guilty of abuse charges at a North Yorkshire care home has been sacked by her employers.
Christina Cooper appeared at a hearing today where she was found guilty of ten charges of verbal and physical abuse towards the residents of the Viking Wing of Connaught Care Home in Fulford.
The Royal Masonic Benevolent Fund, which runs the York care home, has condemned the nurse's actions.
The hearing heard that Cooper branded dementia patients 'disgusting' for soiling their bedding and had threatened to strangle a woman with a scarf.
