An Orientation to Discipline Hearings
Latecomers will be seated during breaks at the discretion of the Manager of Professional Conduct
Discipline hearings are conducted by a panel consisting of at least three members of the Inquiry Committee. Hearings are held following the investigation of a complaint against an RN and are used to determine if the RN is guilty of an offence as charged.
Dates of hearings are subject to change at any time. If you are attending a hearing please confirm whether dates have changed by checking this webpage.
Visitors, including members of the media, are prohibited from carrying into, or using while inside the discipline hearing room, any audio/visual equipment including video cameras, still photography equipment, laptop computers, smart phones and tape recorders.
Members of the media are prohibited from reporting anything that would identify the investigated member, including the member's name or location of practice, unless and until the panel makes a finding under The Regulated Health Professions Act.
If the panel believes that the hearing, or part of the hearing, should be closed to the public, it may make orders it considers necessary to prevent the public disclosure of matters disclosed at the hearing, including orders banning the publication or broadcasting of those matters.
