Ashton care home boss boasted of her sex slave romps
A CARE home manager who flashed at two pensioners and bent a colleague over a desk to spank him faces being struck off.
Lesley Weir boasted of "unspeakable" sexual bondage sessions and showed colleagues marks on her body during staff briefings, a Nursing and Midwifery Council hearing heard.
A conduct and competence committee found all but one allegation against the Bupa care home manager proved yesterday.
It must now decide whether Weir's actions amounted to misconduct and whether her fitness to practise is impaired.
Weir was in charge of the 171-bed Amerind Grove home, in Raleigh Road, Ashton, which specialises in care for dementia sufferers, from February 2008 until August 2010, when she was suspended and then sacked.
Giving evidence to the hearing after being granted anonymity, one of Weir's former colleagues told the hearing: "On one occasion, she told me about being abused over a car bonnet in a car park. This was what she wanted to happen.
"She talked of a number of sexual partners and it involved BDSM – sadomasochistic sex – where Lesley was the slave and her partner was the master. She showed us bruises she got from her sexual activity and was quite open when sat in the reception area."
The colleague said he was scared to report Weir for fear she would lose her temper.
He also told how Weir had spanked him on two separate occasions, including in her office.
Another former colleague said Weir had proudly showed off bruises on her buttocks and breasts, and talked of the "unspeakable things" she liked having done to her.
The home manager lifted her skirt to flash at two pensioners who were visiting a resident, the hearing was told.
Terry Lewis, 76, said he had complained underwear belonging to his friend, a 93-year-old dementia sufferer, had gone missing, to which Weir retorted that he should be "on knicker inspection".
She then told him he could inspect her underwear first, telling him: "I'm not wearing any," before lifting her skirt.
Weir was sacked from the home after bosses discovered that she had pocketed £900 of rent paid by a nurse who lived in a flat on the site.
The NMC was told she stuffed the envelopes of cash into her diary instead of passing them to the home's accountant and only handed the money back when she was caught in August 2010.
Weir claims that she had always intended to pay it back.
Weir, who is not attending the London hearing, wrote to the NMC admitting the majority of charges but denied flashing her buttocks.
She was cleared of asking a colleague about a cancer patient by asking: "Is she dead yet?"
If the panel decides Weir's fitness to practise is impaired, she could be struck off the nursing register.
The hearing continues.
