Stella Nthinya was cleared of making blunders that allegedly led to the patient's foot being amputated, but was found guilty of other mistakes at the Nursing and Midwifery Council hearing in London.
Nthinya had allegedly failed to give a pensioner a week's worth of medication for deep vein thrombosis at the Newark Care Home in Port Glasgow, Inverclyde. The patient suffered "blue foot" and his leg was amputated. He later died. There was no evidence this was linked to her actions.
