Immigrant nurse facing allegations relating to possession of crystal meth ordered Sudafed using colleague’s names

John Benedict Butalid de Lara, of Ballyfermot, who worked as a staff nurse at the Royal Hospital Donnybrook from 2003 until 2014, is facing allegations relating to the possession of crystal meth, and of ordering Sudafed using the names of several colleagues.

The ongoing disciplinary inquiry at the Nursing Board headquarters in Blackrock, Co. Dublin heard in December that an ingredient in Sudafed, pseudoephedrine, can be used in the making of crystal meth.

Today, clinical nurse manager Anne Dooley, who worked with Mr. de Lara at the Royal Hospital Donnybrook for eight years, said she first heard about Mr. de Lara, 45, ordering Sudafed in other people’s names when a health care assistant approached her about the matter.

Ms. Dooley met with Mr. de Lara on 30 June 2013 to discuss the matter. Mr. de Lara admitted that he had ordered the medication in the health care assistant’s name, as he had wanted to send some Sudafed home to the Philippines, where he is from originally.
