** A Merseyside paramedic will remain on the job, despite being deemed guilty of misconduct for groping a nurse’s breast. The Daily Mail (Mark Duell/May 15) quoted the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service (HCPTS) panel as saying despite the infractions, David Davies was still fit to practice. The decision comes after a slew of allegations against him involving inappropriate remarks about the anatomy of female colleagues. It also comes after a 2012 incident in which Davies failed to recognize a chest pains patient was having a heart attack. An HCPTS spokesman said Davies has since admitted his actions towards his co-workers were wrong. While copping to most of the allegations, he was steadfast in denying one. In that instance, a nurse charged that Davies made lewd remarks to her about oral sex. The panel subsequently cleared him of wrongdoing in the latter matter.
