Additional professional details

Sentenced in July (1906) at Lancaster Assizes to three months' imprisonment in the second division for manslaughter, wrote to the Board appealing for a lenient judgement and asserting that she had asked for a doctor to be called into the case in question. The evidence went to show that the midwife delivered a patient of twins, born prematurely, both of which died, that she did not summon medical assistance, but herself performed a delicate operation, the death of the patient being due to the unskilful removal of hte placenta. The judge pointed out that she was a 'relic of an old system'. Decision: to be removed from the Roll. from The British Journal of Nursing, Nov. 17, 1906.
