today29 June 2022

Background
share close

A doctor is alleged to have mistreated nine patients, which include inappropriately prescribing drugs and allowing examinations to be done by staff who were not adequately trained. A tribunal at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) in Manchester is determining if these allegations mean the doctor’s fitness to practice is impaired by reason of misconduct.

The allegations are against Dr Sylvester Nyatsuro during a period from April 4 2016 to May 16 2016. Dr Nyatsuro was practicing in Nottingham at the time, and his primary medical qualification is from the University of Zimbabwe.

The tribunal started on Monday (June 27), and is expected to last until July 12. Dr Nyatsuro has admitted to some allegations, but others are to be determined by the tribunal.

According to a MPTS document detailing the allegations, on April 4 2016, Dr Nyatsuro has admitted he was responsible for the care of Patient A and a consultation took place when prochlorperazine (an anti-sickness medicine) was prescribed and he failed to ensure an adequate record was made of the consultation. It’s to be determined if his rationale for prescribing the drug was adequately recorded.

Dr Nyatsuro has admitted he took responsibility for the care of Patient B on the same day, failing to ensure an adequate medical history was recorded and failing to ensure an adequate record was made of that consultation. He also admitted to inappropriately issuing a prescription for 84 tablets of iron sulfate (to prevent iron deficiency) to the patient without adequate knowledge of the patient’s health, or that the iron sulfate was clinically indicated.

On May 16 2016, Dr Nyatsuro has admitted that he failed to ensure Patient B was adequately assessed and had vaginal swabs taken by a medical practitioner with the appropriate training and experience.

Dr Nyatsuro admitted on April 5 2016, he prescribed Otomize (an ear spray) to Patient C and failed to make an adequate record of the consultation. It’s to be determined if he made an adequate record of his reasoning for prescribing the ear spray.

While caring for Patient E on April 8 2016, Dr Nyatsuro admitted he failed to ensure an adequate medical history was recorded, and that an adequate record was made of the consultation. On April 12 2016, he was responsible for the care of Patient F, and prescribed them Lansoprazole (to lower stomach acid) and Chloramphenicol (eye drops).

Dr Nyatsuro has admitted he failed to make an adequate record in why he prescribed Chloramphenicol, but it’s to be determined if this was the case for Lansoprazole. He has admitted that he failed to ensure an adequate medical history was recorded, failed to conduct an adequate examination of the patient’s eye, inappropriately prescribed Chloramphenicol and failed to make an adequate record of the consultation.

On April 13 2016, Dr Nyatsuro was responsible for the care of Patient G, and following a consultation, Phenoxymethylpenicillin (an antibiotic) was prescribed. He has admitted he failed to ensure an adequate record was made of the consultation.

Dr Nyatsuro was caring for Patient I on April 18 2016, when he prescribed 56 Pregabalin tablets (used to treat epilepsy and anxiety). He has admitted to failing to ensure an adequate medical history was recorded, failing to ensure a follow-up consultation was arranged within two-to-four weeks, and failing to make an adequate record of both the consultation and why he prescribed the tablets.

While caring for Patient K on April 20 2016, a consultation took place, and it is to be determined if Dr Nyatsuro ensured the patient was assessed or examined by a medical practitioner with the appropriate training or experience. In relation to this case, Dr Nyatsuro admitted he failed to ensure an adequate record was made of the consultation, failed to ensure an ECG (electrocardiogram, to measure the rhythm of a heart) was arranged, and failed to refer the patient to the local rapid chest pain clinic or a similar service for diagnosis.

On May 3 2016, Dr Nyatsuro has admitted to failing to ensure an adequate record of a consultation was made while caring for Patient L, and that he failed to ensure an adequate medical history was recorded. It is to be determined if he failed to make an adequate record of prescribing the patient Zopiclone (medicine used for insomnia and sleeping problems).
