A PRISON nurse accused of romping topless with a dangerous inmate in a treatment room at a high-security jail has been struck off.

Jane Jackson, 35, was kicked out of the nursing profession after being found guilty of misconduct and acting inappropriately while being sexually motivated.

She also had her fitness to practice impaired by a panel of the Nursing and Midwifery Council, sitting yesterday.

The tribunal was told Ms Jackson had met with the category A prisoner at HMP Woodhill on a number of occasions.

The blonde nurse even used a mop to prop up against a door during one tryst so she would not be disturbed.

But she was caught out when a female prison officer burst in and found her hiding behind the door, holding her bra, with the inmate – who was wearing just his shorts and a T-shirt – on the afternoon of February 7, 2009.

Rebecca Langley had earlier tried to get into the room but had been unable to because of the mop.

There was no CCTV in the room and Ms Jackson had breached prison security rules by being alone with the prisoner.

Ms Jackson – who did not attend the hearing – had also smuggled in toiletries for the inmate and left prison keys unattended on a chair as they romped.

Paul Morris, lay panel chairman at the hearing in central London, said: “The panel has considered that a striking off order is the only sanction sufficient to protect the public interest.”

He said Ms Jackson had put patients and colleagues at risk.

“The inappropriate behaviour with Prisoner A was sexually motivated,” he said.

He added that she had shown a “flagrant” disregard to prison security rules.

The hearing heard the prisoner had ceased to be a patient of Ms Jackson’s in 2008, but they continued to meet without “any clinical reason”.

Ms Jackson had claimed she had been pressurised into her saucy actions after being “scared for her life”.

Ms Jackson was sacked by Milton Keynes Primary Care Trust on July 9, 2009.
