First published in News by

A SHAMED nursing home manager who pocketed cash belonging to vulnerable elderly residents has been spared an immediate jail sentence.

Earlier Tracey Thompson admitted seven theft offences involving a total of around £2,200 at the Avon Cliff nursing home in Christchurch Road, Bournemouth.

The 49-year-old from Wimborne Road, Bournemouth, pleaded guilty to stealing money from residents in her care and also from her employers, helping herself to more than £1,000 worth of printer cartridges from the home which she later sold on eBay.

At a previous hearing Bournemouth magistrates were told how:

  • Thompson stole £75 from Winifred Thompson
  • £100 from Kenneth Markless l cash with an unknown value from Connie Fisher
  • £100 from Doris Rylands
  • £49 from Rachel Harris since January 1, 2010.

She also admitted taking £730 from the nursing home between January 1 and June 8, 2012 and cartridges worth £1,126 between July 28, 2011 and August 21, 2012.

In her defence, Mike Flynn said Thompson was in debt and had taken out payday loans to repay them, adding: “She is very ashamed and has been co-operative with the police.

“Unfortunately she found herself in difficulties.”

Bournemouth Crown Court heard how Thompson had been treated at St Ann’s Hospital in Poole and was currently being cared for by her doctor and the community health team.

Judge Samuel Wiggs imposed a sixmonth prison sentence, suspended for a year. Thompson will be supervised by the Probation Service for a similar period and must attend an education, training and employment programme for 15 days.

She seems happy enough now.
Looks as though all you need to do to avoid jail is call the Mental Health Team and say you feel ill.
Still amazes me that a company as large as Colten Care that charges over £1200 per week can not have robust systems in place to monitor residents money and even worse that there appears to be one elderly person for whom they cannot even account for the sum of money stolen.
What a joke of the judicial system. This woman is a Registered Nurse in a position of Responsibility and she has abused not only her position but also the very people she was employed to protect and help.
I wonder if the Court would have been so forgiving if it were their relatives that had been the victims of this crime.

Probably a sensible decision not to send her to jail. Sounds like she's suffering from severe depression which is a particularly nasty and debilitating illness that's not understood by anyone who's never suffered from it. Yes she was in the wrong for stealing, particularly from the vulnerable. Yes she shouldn't have got herself into debt in the first place. I'm not defending that. But perhaps it's time to stop vilifying her for a stupid error of judgement and let her move on.

The problem is that what message does this send out to the hundred of thousands of care workers that look after the elderly and frail and the millions of Qualified Nurses who take an oath and commitment to care for their patients?

You obviously know this lady well?
Perhaps you can ask her was her breakdown due to the guilt and shame she felt from stealing the money from societies most vulnerable, the very same people she had been employed to look after? Or was her breakdown triggered by the fact she had been caught and that she was likely to be facing a prison term not to mention the embarrassment of being named and shamed?

Of course she could have taken significantly more than this sum improperly from the public purse and used the depression and illness aspect to far better effect.
No need to repay all the money at all, nice fat lump sum of public money still paid at end of career and absolutely no need to turn up at court as it would require physical 'restraint' (although photographed fit enough to go to a local pub) or fear being sent to prison - allegedly works for MPs?

Has it occurred to you that perhaps she just hasn't been caught till now.
As for all those unpaid shifts, visiting residents on Xmas day and helping out all the time lets remember firstly she was a manager and on a salary of at least £38k plus it's part of the job. Let's then not forget that most offenders appear very trustworthy. Look at the publican who just stole £29000 from the Christmas Fund. It's always the ones you trust!

this lady abused her position in the most hideous way. I know for certain that she stole far more than she admitted to Police in order to reduce the severity of her offence. The Colten Care Senior Management Team also made promises to victims that they were aware of the offences and would ensure they would be compensated for any loss. They failed to honour this and have also failed to pursue any claims or reassure or support these victims. Absolutely disgraceful!

Only one person that knows the real truth is Tracey Thompson herself. I have never harrassed her, however I do know certain facts to be true and she did steal many other items of value from vulnerable residents in her care over a longish period of time and was covering her tracks by lying and deception especially towards her own members of staff. She was caught out eventually that is the raeson the thefts stopped. Assuming her illness is genuine, she should at least be honest and own up to the other thefts, some of considerable value. The Colten Care Management must take some responsibility. The number of losses at thus home over the recent years should have rung alarm bells. The handling by CC Mgt and lack of compensation to other victims is almost as despicable as the thefts bt Tracey Thompson themselves. I can assure you that those victims feel very angry and upset and unable to fight their corner. You are correct, I don't know everything but I am sure of the comments I have made to be true.

t.south, I appreciate your loyalty, but I have been made aware of many cases of personal items "going missing" and being reported directly to her (Thompson) which did not go any further, and of course were not followed up. Just talk to members of staff and some of the residents that have had items stolen- in some cases worth not only a few thousand pounds EACH but of huge sentimental value and irreplaceable. She got caught cos once too many times she kept the report of an item of personal jewellery to herself and hoped it would be forgotten.....but it wasn't and the Police finally called in. These thefts would have continued had she not been stopped. I think you will find that that the Police did not have sufficient evidence to prove she had stolen other items and they could not be recovered (sold) and she didn't own up so it would have been very difficult to prove and probably not have made a great difference to the prosecution outcome. This does not of course offer any closure or feeling of justice for the many victims. I think you know this to be true, even if difficult to stomach. As said before, despite her illness and the despicable thefts she should at least be honest and own up to ALL the crimes so a line can be drawn. I still maintain that the Colten Care Mgt should do the honest thing and investigate thoroughly and compensate those victims not mentioned in the case. The phrase "tip of the ice berg" applies here.

As both chesterlester and myself have been accused of harrassing the thief,by t.south,it is very obvious that this poor girl has obviously got problems,and does not realise that SHE is the one making false statements,which if she continues could result in her facing legal action.She is obviously NOT worth listening to,and is no better than her mother.Foul language from her is denied,so there again, she is not even aware of what she says on here,and expects us to believe she was unaware of her mothers thefts.

When my Mother was dieing she spent her last few months in this home and I remember Tracey well. Her and all the staff were absolutely wonderfull. I cannot think of something so emotionaly tough and draining as helping a family through a loved ones last days so I'm not surprised she had a breakdown and whilst I'm sure it was upsetting to the victims she didnt traumatise them for life like the New forrest gunman who quite frankly seems to be getting more sympathy. For goodness sakes people I know most of you have never met Tracey but surely you can see the circumstances are not strait forward and she is not your average criminal.

Nosuchluck54 , no one has lied you deluded man, and as I said before im not defending her hust stating facts which you seem to know nothing about. She took some money from her safe in her office which belonged to the home and some residence, she admitted it and she said sorry and has been punished, end of. And you make me laugh,move out of area , why would she do that lol, she stole some money she didnt kill someone. What worries me is what are you going to do with your time when these comments close!

And quite frankly your comment is ridiculous, do you really live in such a black and white world I'd love to see that aplied to your life and see how happy that makes you being judged with no concideration for circumstance or intent and punished to the maximum for everything you do, you'd soon change your tune.

If by black and white you mean right from wrong then i am Guilty your honour.I believe that by law it is wrong to steal from people, i personally believe it is sickening by human standards to steal from the old and vunerable especially when entrusted to care for them.All care workers in homes have been put under the spotlight because of this individuals unacceptable behaviour and to my mind she deserved a custodial sentence instead she got no punishment as i can see it

Whilst I dont know the full facts Im not going to judge this person.But, it certainly makes you think who you can trust in this day and age.Its put a damper on those many honest carers and people in a position of trust which is a shame, they to will be in doubt as to there honesty.Lets hope these care homes enforce a bit more security measures to stop it happening again.?And for the honest people im sure you do a very good looking after people in your care.

Still amazes me that a company as large as Colten Care that charges over £1200 per week can not have robust systems in place to monitor residents money and even worse that there appears to be one elderly person for whom they cannot even account for the sum of money stolen.
What a joke of the judicial system. This woman is a Registered Nurse in a position of Responsibility and she has abused not only her position but also the very people she was employed to protect and help.
I wonder if the Court would have been so forgiving if it were their relatives that had been the victims of this crime.
