The state's case is nurse Mulholland took serenace from the drugs press, put it into a syringe and went with a nurse to Mr Gethings bedside, rolled him on to his side with excessive force and gave him an intra-muscular injection into his buttock with a white needle which is not used to give inter-muscular injections.
But neither Mr Gethings or Mr Doherty, 80, had been prescribed an intra-muscular serenace injection by doctors.
