The state Board of Examiners for Nursing this week disciplined eight nurses, including one from New Haven in connection with care for a seriously injured prisoner at York Correctional Institution in Niantic and one from Wallingford who worked at Bridgeport Hospital.
The board said Shanequa Moore of New Haven failed to properly care for an inmate who suffered a serious brain injury in the prison medical unit in 2014. Moore also had her license placed on probation for two years after the board found that Moore failed to practice nursing with empathy, compassion and care in the inmate’s case, a consent order she agreed to said. While not admitting wrongdoing, Moore chose not to contest the allegations. She has completed courses in medical documentation, ethics, professional accountability, mindfulness and empathy, the order said.
