As part of the continuing investigation by South Wales Police into allegations of wilful neglect at the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend, the two nurses who were arrested last month have now been charged.
Jade Pugh, 29, has been charged with three counts of wilful neglect contrary to Section 44 Mental Capacity Act 2005. Natalie Jones, 40, has been charged with four counts of wilful neglect contrary to Section 44 Mental Capacity Act 2005. Natalie will appear before Bridgend Magistrates on Friday 12th September and Jade on Wednesday 24th September.
These charges relate to three patients, all of whom are among those already subject to previous charges in this investigation.
Police officers have contacted all of the patients or the families of those patients concerned to keep them fully informed of developments.
