A nurse placed a bottle of urine beside a patient's breakfast, a hearing into his conduct has been told.

Titus Ogunjinmi was working at the Holly House Hospital in Buckhurst Hill, Essex, when the alleged incident happened in October 2011.

He is also accused of leaving a "blood stained incontinence pad" in a patient's room.

A three-day Nursing and Midwifery Council conduct panel is hearing the case in London.

The case is expected to end on Friday.

The panel has heard how Mr Ogunjinmi had been employed as a registered agency nurse at the private hospital.

It is alleged that during a nightshift Mr Ogunjinmi called a patient by the wrong name, failed to give medication and did not provide an accurate handover to a colleague.
