A Scottish nurse who became infected with Ebola in Sierra Leone in late 2014, is facing a disciplinary inquiry after the British nursing body accused her of hiding a high temperature upon returning to the U.K.
The BBC reports that Pauline Cafferkey “allowed an incorrect temperature to be recorded” when she landed at London’s Heathrow Airport in December 2014 — failing to specify that her temperature was in fact just north of 38°C (100°F).
The disciplinary hearing next month will determine if Cafferkey is still qualified to practice as a nurse in the U.K.
