Rogers, of Purton Close, Bristol, pleaded guilty to nine charges of ill-treating two patients while Dove, of Chipperfield Drive, Bristol, pleaded guilty to seven charges involving three women.

Draper pleaded guilty to two charges of ill-treatment.

Rogers pleaded not guilty to one charge and Dove pleaded not guilty to another. The pleas were ordered to lie on the file.

All three were bailed for pre-sentence reports.
