An Argyll nurse faces allegations that she lied about her whereabouts during a search for a missing care home resident.
Jane Divers, who worked at the Ashgrove Care Home, Dunoon, is alleged to have told a colleague that she was conducting a medication round when that was not the case.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council has now scheduled a hearing into the allegation – and three further charges – later this month.
She is charged with being dishonest by concealing her whereabouts on November 20, 2011.
Ms Divers is also charged with swearing and calling a patient a “nightmare”.
It is also alleged that on Janunary 1 last year, she did not check on a resident more frequently than at two hour intervals.
The hearing, in Edinburgh on August 21, will look at whether Ms Divers’ fitness to practice is impaired.
Ms Divers could not be contacted.
