Nurse loses license after failing to report child abuse

PORTLAND (WGME) -- A nurse who failed to report signs of abuse of an infant who later died has lost her license.

Former home health nurse Virginia McNamara has signed a voluntary agreement with the State Board of Nursing, and the agreement was made final this week.

The document references the case of 10-week-old Ethan Henderson, who died in May 2012 as a result of abuse he suffered at the hands of his father, Gordon Collins-Faunce.

McNamara was accused of failing to report a broken arm and bruises to the Maine Department of Health and Human Services.

Collins-Faunce pleaded guilty to manslaughter and is serving a 20-year prison sentence.
