Who is Paddy McKee?

Paddy McKee lost his job after not admitting Sally Mays to the Miranda House in Hull before taking his own life at home.

The verdict comes after a Fitness to Practice hearing conducted by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Ms May’s parents Andy and Angela fought for years to get the lessons learned after a coroner ruled that it could have been avoided if she had been admitted.

Her daughter took her own life in July 2014 after two nurses from the Humber NHS Foundation Trust crisis team refused to admit her to the hospital.

This came after a short 14-minute evaluation at Miranda House and despite the fact that she was at risk of suicide.

Angela said:

The imposition of the maximum sanction of a cancellation order to ensure that McKee never again practices is what we have sought for the last seven years.

“It is important that no other patient suffer the abject psychological torture and cruelty that he inflicted on Sally when she begged for help.

He did not give her any care, compassion, kindness, or human dignity.

‘The sanction imposed by the NMC sends a very important message about the standards of practice required of mental health professionals.

“For us as a family, the last seven and a half years have been absolutely harrowing. We can never come to terms with the details of the outrageous behavior of the so-called ‘professionals’ responsible for Sally’s care and whose actions ultimately contributed directly to her death.

Investigation

An eight-day investigation in 2015 heard that Ms Mays, who had an emotionally unstable personality disorder, died of an overdose and mechanical suffocation.

It took 99 minutes for the Yorkshire ambulance service, which was called, to reach her apartment in West Hull.

The investigation heard that she asked to be admitted to the hospital as her mental health deteriorated in the last days of her life.

Three nurses from her community team and her psychotherapist recommended a short hospital stay in accordance with her plan of care.

But McKee and another nurse refused to admit her after conducting what forensic professor Paul Marks called a “regrettable” evaluation.
