Ayesha Basharat is 23-years-old.
But by that time the card had been cancelled and police arrested her during her shift on Ward One while she was still in possession of the victim’s card.
Basharat, from Birmingham, initially claimed she found it on the floor and got it “muddled up” with her own card when paying for her snacks.
But a court heard how the bank cards were different colours and that Basharat had ignored hospital protocol around patient lost property.
Basharat admitted theft and fraud by false representation at Birmingham Crown Court on June 9.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Andrew Snowdon, from West Midlands Police, said: “This was an abhorrent breach of trust and distressing for the victim’s family.
“They were having to come to terms with the death of a loved one from Covid when they found the bank card missing – and then of course the realisation that the card was taken by someone who should have been caring for her.
“I’d like to thank them and the victim’s family for their support during the investigation.
