The Member admitted that she engaged in professional misconduct by: contravening the standards of practice of the profession or failing to meet the standards of practice of the profession; inappropriately using a term, title or designation in respect of her practice; identifying herself as a doctor and using the title “doctor” in the course of providing health care; practising the profession while in a conflict of interest; and engaging in conduct or performing an act, relevant to the practice of nursing that, having regarding to all of the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members of the profession as disgraceful, dishonourable and unprofessional.
The Member signed an undertaking to permanently resign as a member of the College and agreed not to reapply for membership with the College at any time in the future. In light of this undertaking, the College and the Member jointly sought an order requiring the Member to appear before the Panel to be reprimanded within three months of the date of the order.
The mitigating factors included: the Member cooperated with the College, was at the end of her career and accepted responsibility for her actions. The aggravating factor was the seriousness of the allegations.
The Panel accepted the Joint Submission on Order and concluded that the proposed penalty was reasonable and in the public interest. The Panel noted it would have ordered a much different penalty had the undertaking not been in place.
