Nurse Karen Bailey, played by Pamela Susan Shoop, is a character in the 1981 film Halloween II.
Bailey is employed as a nurse at Haddonfield Memorial Hospital. She is reprimanded by Head Nurse Virginia Alves for being late once again, stressing the importance of her job since she's in charge of the baby wing.
She sneaks away to rendezvous with Budd Scarlotti in the therapeutic hot tub. Budd goes to adjust the temperature and is killed by Michael Myers who sneaked up behind him. She sits at the edge of the hot tub and Myers walks up behind her. She kisses his fingers, thinking he's Budd. He grabs her by the hair and repeatedly dunks her head under the scalding water. She finally dies either by drowning or burn trauma.
