Ashford: Pervert nurse David Jones guilty of sexually motivated misconduct including touching and sending explicit video

A nurse was struck off after sending a married woman an X-rated video of himself - and suggesting she should try 'topless rowing.'

The woman's furious husband discovered the video of David Jones on her mobile - along with a lewd message detailing his intentions.

Jones was struck off the medical register after a decade-long catalogue of seedy behaviour at the William Harvey hospital in Ashford was laid bare.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council heard how Jones told one colleague at the hospital that she should “try topless rowing”.

And he wrapped hospital cables around the wrists of another worker, calling her his “bondage paddy”.

Panel chair William Nelson said: “His misconduct formed a pattern of multiple incidents spanning 11 years.

“Despite repeated warnings he continued to behave inappropriately,”

Jones, who worked for East Kent NHS Trust from September 1999 to June 2017, was found guilty of sexually motivated misconduct.

The hearing, in London, heard that in 2006 Jones slid his hands between a colleague’s legs while she drove him to the hospital.

He also sent her a video of himself performing a solo sex act.

The woman told how the footage, found by her husband, had “come out of the blue” and that she was left “shocked.”

Mr Nelson said: “When she saw Mr Jones at work on the following Monday he had a big smile on his face. She told him never to contact her again.

“When she told him that her husband had seen the video, he looked shocked and apologised for his behaviour.”

In late 2016, Jones wrapped the leads of an air mattress around a colleague and made the bondage remark.

She told how Jones would touch her bottom during “most of the shifts they worked together”.

The nurse told how “the touching lessened when I protected myself” but that “it wasn’t easy, he was there most of the time”.

Jones also made the topless rowing remark to another female colleague in April last year, after groping her from behind.

Striking Jones from the nursing register, Mr Nelson added: “The misconduct involved multiple very serious departures from the standards expected of a registered nurse and occurred over a long period.

“Mr Jones’s behaviour is fundamentally incompatible with him remaining on the register.”
