Jailed mental health nurse, 48, who drew curtain around vulnerable patient and tried to feed her sleeping pills before raping her in hospital bed is struck off

  • Mohamed Kamara raped a patient suffering with PTSD and long-term depression
  • He was jailed for 15 years in 2018 after victim told her daughter, who told police
  • Mental health nurse Kamara was today struck from the profession by the NMC 

Mohamed Kamara was one of the 24-hour one-to-one mental health nurses assigned to the woman

A nurse who raped a patient with PTSD and depression after drawing the curtains around her hospital bed has been kicked out of the profession following his 15-year jail sentence. 

Mohamed Kamara, 48, tried to force feed the woman sleeping pills before sexually abusing her at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London, on 15 May 2017.

The patient was suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, emotional unstable personality disorder and long-term depression. 

After raping her, he forced her to take a shower and changed the bedsheet to remove any incriminating evidence. He also threatened her in a bid to prevent her from calling the police.

But the victim told her daughter, who informed police and Kamara was arrested.

Kamara, of Thamesmead, southeast London, was convicted of rape and jailed for 15 years at Snaresbrook Crown Court in July 2018.

He was ordered to sign on the sex offenders’ register for life – and was today struck from the nursing profession. 

Nursing and Midwifery Council panel chairman Paul Morris said: ‘Mr Kamara has been convicted of raping an extremely vulnerable patient in her hospital bed.

‘The panel considered that not only was this a very serious criminal conviction, but that it also constituted a gross breach of trust and an abuse of his position.

‘It considered that, due to the very serious nature of Mr Kamara’s conviction and the surrounding circumstances, the only sanction which would adequately protect the public and satisfy the public interest is a striking-off order.

‘The panel decided that to take any other action in this case would undermine public confidence in the profession and the NMC as a regulatory body, and leave the public exposed to a future risk of harm.

‘The panel therefore decided that the appropriate and proportionate sanction is a striking-off order.’
