Sexual Abuse

The College of Nurses of Ontario exists for one primary reason: to ensure Ontarians receive safe nursing.

We recognize the egregious harm and lasting effect that results from sexual abuse by a nurse. We consider all complaints and reports of sexual abuse as high risk and are committed to ensuring each receives a high priority investigation and to giving sensitive and respectful support to victims who are involved in our regulatory processes.

To enhance the public’s safety, we continually seek ways to improve how we deal with the issue of the sexual abuse of patients. We will continue to work with government and other groups to do what is needed to eliminate these abuses.
