The College alleged that the Member engaged in professional misconduct by: contravening a standard of practice of the profession, or failing to meet the standards of practice of the profession, when he hit a client across the face; verbally, physically and/or emotionally abusing a client; and engaging in conduct or performing an act, relevant to the practice of nursing that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members of the profession as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional.

The College presented four witnesses. The Panel assessed the credibility of the Member and the College’s witnesses and found the College did not meet the burden of proving its case on a balance of probabilities. The Panel made no findings of professional misconduct against the Member.
