A Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) hearing yesterday considered the case of a Plymouth nurse who punted clean and soiled underwear on eBay while on duty at the city's Derriford Hospital, the local Herald reports. Sheena McMillan, 24, in April 2007 set up a listing entitled 'naughty knicks' with the username Sheena66c. It read …
Twenty five pounds?
Not to be sniffed at.
Am I the only one who went on facebook to see what she looks like? lol
Paris because she could have looked like her (she really doesn't though)
I dont think we can really judge this individual without atleast seeing a photo of the offending articles (all 3 types!) and the seller herself............
mines the sweaty mac....
"Hospital IT security operatives probed her inbox"
M&S do clean ones for much less than £20.
I smell BOFH!
At least she didn't get the cattle prod!
Wonder what she did to upset him?
They're watching us all you know..
IT probed her inbox
Was this so they didn't have pay the £25 for the pre probed ones? Nice to see them saving tax payers money.
Paris because I am sure she is happy to have her inbox probed.
Insert your own gag...
This story smells a bit fishy to me...
...mines the one for sale soiled on eBay for £50.
Has anyone been harmed by the action?
Has anyone been harmed by the nurses inaction? - ie suffered because she was doing this rather than nursing.
Has she done other offenses?
Assuming 'No's I would say let her off with a warning/ slap wrist and everyone moves on.
he he - 'probed her in-box'
PH - 'cos we all know her in-box has been probed.
Oh come ON
IT only "Probed her inbox"?
I would expect a full defragging at the very least
£25 for a pair of smelly knickers I can understand (if that's your thing) but £20 for clean ones?
Christ, I'm in the wrong game.
Mine's the one with the multipack of granny knickers and a bottle of anchovy sauce in the pocket...
Poor lamb. The silly girl shouldn't have used her work address, though. General 'bad practice' aside, it would leave her open to stalkers.
For anyone looking for a bargain...
...You can buy my boxers for the bargain price of £12 (+ postage)
£15 if you want a clean pair.
I can also do socks- £10 a pair. I have athlete's foot. I'm not sure if that makes them worth more?
selling knickers = bad at being a nurse
Selling knickers does not made her any less able to do her job! ews she was wrong to do it on office equipment and email, she should get a serious telling off and mark against her, but not blacklisted as I'm sure she is very good at her job
I don't get these numpties...
Who use their work email and PCs for this sort of thing.
Paris, because even she'd be smart enough to use her home PC...
"serious, unresolved health issues"
I hope the NMC is refering to the items tendered for auction, rather than insinuating calumnies in a case about the use of work computers for private purposes. Bodily orifices are all in a day's work, should the NMC care to recall. Far more harm has been done in my experience from breaches of confidentiality - yes, including consultant physicians - which occur far more frequently, and with apparent impunity.
A sense of proportionality is in order. Anyone posting "think of the children" should have a certain evacuative medical procedure performed on them if necessary to induce it.
You are aManFromMars AICMFP.
She could have made far more money if she'd advertised them as _nurse's_ knickers.
Re: Silly girl...
Yeah but that would have been really foolhardy, I mean her work could have figured out that it was her from something like that.
My main concern...
...is that she's wasting time at work on non work related websites instead of actually working.

No I'm not amfM. I'm actually Luther Blissett. (Actually I'm not him either, but that would take too long to explain. And I'm not Them, either, but you can scroogle that for yourself).
I like AC as the brilliant Nikola Tesla is a hero of mine, and sometimes I don't want to be The Only Living Boy in New York.
Well she's obviously unfit to work with people, she has sex and I'd assume sex outside of marrage, and not only that she seeks to prospor from her deviant sexual acts!!!
Defenetly one to be watched in future, she may have some offensive porn, going on the sex offenders register should sort her out.
I for one welcome our Puritan overlords!
Proof that the NHS doesn't pay enough?
I dunno, these poor nurses, so under paid they're forced to sell their undies on eBay.
You'd have thought she'd be smart enough to use her own e-mail from home though.
How about ...
... firing the people responsible for this over-reaction and using the money saved to give nurses a pay rise so they do not need to sell their knickers to make ends meet.
No you're not.
And I wish I hadn't.
from the looks of her..
..on facebook, I'm very very suprised she was allowed to be a nurse, nver mind managed to flog her scuds online.
Was she a nurse at a troll hospital?
Paris? because of her bedside manner!
I feel your pain. Having checked, I will now never be able to buy used nurse's knickers online, even if I wanted to. Damn Facebook spoiled all that potential indulgence. I will have to stick to getting the knickers of(f) the *hot* nurses I actually know for free.
Facebook is bad for the economy.
Quote: "the facts ... clearly have the potential to bring the nursing profession into disrepute.."
Whoa! Isn't sexy lingerie under a starched uniform *exactly* what most people - most blokes in IT, anyway - expect from the nursing profession?
But in this particular case, the nurse in question was too stupid to realise that email in general - and work email in particular - is a megaphone and that she was bound to get fingered by some PFY (no sniggering at the back). On balance, would YOU want someone that stupid dolling out medication or sticking needles in you?
On second thoughts...
The Sun (a sort of newspaper for non-UK readers) has a picture here for us non-Facebookers:
Despite my jibes (comments, above), I feel rather sorry for her. She's obviously disturbed (hence the referral of her case to the health committee), probably none too bright, and sadly lacking in the porn-star appeal I imagine her potential, er, 'customers' would expect.
Nurse ... the screens!
Can you imagine taking an 'old-fashioned' Matron around a modern hospital?
"This is the Nurses' Station."
"What's that for?"
It's where the nurses stand around when they're not looking after patients."
"What do you mean 'not looking after patients'? That's their job!"
"Well, it's where they run their sidelines on eBay."
(Sound of Matron using her Uzi on the nurses)
'Unresolved Health Issues'
On a more serious note ...
Can we assume from this that having been rumbled and suspended by her employer, for either non-work activities or disrepute, she is now pleading absence through sickness, which means that she has been off work on full pay since April 2007.
Once again the NHS lodges itself in a cleft stick. Having suspended her pending the NMC hearing, before starting the internal disciplinary procedure, they now find she is pleading illness to avoid the disciplinary action, which means that they can't sack her for absence, because she is suspended and they can't sack her without going through the disciplinary procedure which they can't do because she is sick.
National Unhealthy Service
It's not a medical condition that might be affecting this woman's judgment that needs checking, it's whatever medical condition affected those responsible for her appointment in the first place.
It was they, not this "nurse", who brought the "profession" into disrepute by employing an individual of so obviously minimal IQ it's a wonder she could even tell one end of a thermometer from another.
Dysfunctional sleaze-bags must presumably have a place somewhere (perhaps alongside Brand, Woss and Gervais) but not in an environment where life, death, trauma and tragedy are the order of the day. Ensuring this cretin never works again as a nurse will be a good thing -- ensuring that those who appointed her don't work again either will be even better.
