Aycha Hawil - JJ03699
The Member admitted that he 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 failed to maintain the boundaries of the therapeutic nurse-client relationship. The Member agreed that his conduct was disgraceful, dishonourable and unprofessional.
The College and the Member presented the Panel with a Joint Submission requesting an Order that included an oral reprimand and revocation of the Member’s certificate of registration.
The mitigating factors were that the Member chose to accept responsibility for his actions and cooperated with the investigation. The aggravating factors were the seriousness of the Member’s conduct and its lasting impact on the Client. The Member took advantage of the trust and intimacy of the nurse/client relationship and exploited it to meet his own needs.
The Panel accepted the Joint Submission on Order and concluded that the proposed penalty was reasonable and in the public interest.
