Claude Robichaud - 11444895
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 by harassing two co-workers and engaging in an unprofessional interaction with a third co-worker; 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 and unprofessional.
The College and the Member presented the Panel with a Joint Submission requesting the Panel to make an Order that included an oral reprimand, a four-month suspension, and terms, conditions and limitations on the Member’s certificate of registration, including attending two meetings with a Nursing Expert and employer notification for 12 months.
The mitigating factors included: the Member cooperated with the College; had no prior discipline history; and showed remorse. The aggravating factors included: the misconduct included both verbal and physical behaviour not fitting for a nurse; the allegations involved three different co-workers; and the incidents all happened on the same day.
The Panel accepted the Joint Submission on Order and concluded that the proposed penalty was reasonable and in the public interest.
