Nurse sings to elderly woman dying of cancer, holds her hand

first_imgNurse sings to elderly woman dying of cancer, holds her hand Published: October 28, 2017 10:23 AM EDT Updated: October 28, 2017 10:28 AM EDT Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (CBS NEW YORK) A kindhearted nurse went above and beyond the call of duty to bring comfort to one of her patients who was dying of cancer.Nurse Olivia Neufelder sat with Margaret Smith for hours as her anesthesia wore off.Smith’s daughter, Megan, shared a touching and emotional video on Facebook of the nurse holding her mother’s hand and singing her a song.“You never left her side by choice!” Smith wrote. “Words cannot describe the appreciation and love we feel for nurse Olivia who mom calls her angel! Your dedication to your patients is beyond any that I have seen, you truly are a beam of light and I cannot thank you enough for the compassion and care and love you shared for my mother. God bless you Olivia!”Neufelder said her heart breaks thinking about losing Margaret.“Knowing that she will be dancing in the heavens and singing with the angels helps me find peace during this somber time,” Neufelder said. “This experience has challenged me in many ways.”The nurse hopes those who watch the video see what true compassion looks like and begin to practice it themselves.“I pray this story helps people find comfort through a dark time they may be going through,” she said.Margaret was later moved from the hospital to a nursing home, where she reportedly died on Wednesday, according to CBS46.

‘Bullying’ senior MoJ lawyer loses injunction fight

first_imgA deputy master at the Court of Appeal has failed to secure an injunction against the Ministry of Justice to prevent a disciplinary hearing being held against him.Robert Hendy, employed by the MoJ as a lawyer since 2002, was suspended in December 2011 after allegations by two solicitor colleagues of bullying and undermining of other members of staff.Hendy denied and continues to deny the allegations.But an investigation report by the MoJ found evidence of serious misconduct and Hendy was dismissed in March 2013.He appealed the decision on the basis that the complainants were not sufficiently cross-examined by investigators. He said his responses to the allegations were not put in full to those who had complained about him.A second investigation upheld the finding of gross misconduct, prompting Hendy to serve an application seeking injunctive relief.Following a four-day hearing in the High Court (Chancery Division) last month, Mr Justice Mann found that Hendy’s application for an interim injunction restraining the pursuit of the disciplinary process had failed and ought to be dismissed.Mann said the MoJ had done enough to test the complainants’ credibility, even without putting Hendy’s case on all allegations. ‘The process is not akin to a major trial, at which the whole factual case of one party is (by and large) expected to be put to the other,’ said Mann. ‘An investigator cannot be expected to do that, and it is not necessary or reasonable to require it.’Mann said it was ‘sufficiently plain’ that the investigator’s procedures were fair enough to prevent there being a breach of contract, as Hendy had argued.The judge also made it clear employees cannot assume the court will always intervene whenever there is perceived unfairness in a disciplinary procedure. ‘The court cannot micro-manage employment disputes,’ added Mann.Hendy had been appointed in 2007 as acting senior lawyer in the civil appeals office and in 2008 was appointed deputy master at the Court of Appeal.Two female lawyers in the Court of Appeal made written complaints against Hendy in December 2011. Hendy’s case was, and remains, that the complainants ‘trumped up’ allegations against him.last_img read more

Russia Law Week seeks to build bridges

first_img‘Establishing bridges in challenging times’ was a fitting theme for this year’s Russia Law Week.  Jointly hosted by the Law Society and the Bar Council on 15-16 November, the event discussed legal developments in Russia and the impact on the wider profession.One session focused on Moscow’s efforts to clamp down on offshore tax evasion, neatly coined as ‘de-offshoreisation’, and another on the country’s new arbitration laws.Legislation passed earlier this year requires Russian residents (whether individuals or companies) owning more than 10% of a foreign company to declare and pay taxes on the company’s income. As part of these measures, a ‘tax amnesty’ encourages full disclosure by individuals of foreign assets and bank accounts not previously declared. In exchange, they are handed an exemption from criminal or civil liability.Egor Noskov, founder of Duvernoix Legal in St Petersburg, said the law introduced ‘positive initiatives but was badly executed’. He said the entire legislation was just seven pages and regulated ‘hundreds of thousands of situations where money had been placed abroad’.‘It’s a mistake to assume that people use offshore to evade taxes. The main reason I believe is a confidentiality issue,’ he said, adding that people do not trust the state to handle confidential information.Also controversial are Russia’s new arbitration laws which came into force in September, specifically in relation to corporate disputes.Under the legislation, corporate disputes involving shareholders of a Russian entity are now arbitrable, but only under certain provisions.The legislation distinguishes between three categories of corporate dispute and whether they qualify for arbitration. Disputes involving a public element, including state registration of corporations, do not.Evgeniya Rubinina, senior associate at the London office of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, said the new legislation had a ‘very broad definition’, describing it as ‘one step forward, two steps back’.last_img read more
