Paramedic Who Bragged About Groping Patient’s Breasts on Duty Found Guilty of Misconduct
Facebook has gotten another worker in trouble after a British paramedic was found guilty of misconduct for posting following a shift that he’d groped a patient’s “cracking jubblies.”
Okay, this is one of the reasons why British men can totally get away with being perverts around American women, come on. But the Health Professions Council panel that handed down the ruling was not quite so tickled by Mark Small of Bristol’s wording, deciding that the experienced paramedic had behaved in an “‘irresponsible, immature and highly unprofessional” fashion by posting the following comment to his Facebook feed on June 28th of last year:
“Saved someone’s life and managed to cop a feel of some cracking jubblies.”
Small, who has worked as a paramedic for 8 years, was immediately suspended after a complaint by one of his 150 Facebook friends was lodged, but he later explained that the comment had related to someone other than a patient who was present at the scene. The actual context of the jubbly-touching was not disclosed by press.
Small, who said he “had no intention of finding [himself] in this type of situation again,” was given an official caution that will remain on his record for three years.
