Allegations and Plea
The College alleged that the Member failed to cooperate with the Quality Assurance (QA) Committee and that this conduct would be regarded as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional.
The Member admitted to the allegations, and the College and the Member jointly submitted an agreement to the following facts.
The Member was randomly selected by the QA Committee to participate in Practice Assessment for 2014. She failed to complete the required activities by the deadline, despite having been given two extensions. The Member stated that she was having problems with mail delivery at home and did not receive all of the College’s correspondence, but confirmed that she was aware of her obligation to participate in the QA program. A College Investigator contacted the Member several times by mail, telephone, and email, requesting a response. The Member finally sent a response several weeks after the initial request.
The Member admits that she failed to participate after being selected by the QA Committee for practice assessment.
The Panel found that the Member committed professional misconduct as alleged, and that the Member’s conduct would be regarded as unprofessional. The Member demonstrated a serious and persistent disregard for her professional obligations.
Submissions on Order
The College and the Member sought an oral reprimand and a one-month suspension. The Member would be required to complete specified remediation activities in preparation for a series of meetings with a nursing expert, and would be required to participate in the College’s 2017 QA Program or next available cycle.
The Panel accepted the joint submission as reasonable and in the public interest. The Member accepted responsibility for her actions and cooperated with the College by agreeing to the facts and proposed penalty.
