Reasons to File a Complaint

If you feel a registered nurse or a registered nurse practitioner has engaged in poor practice, inappropriate behaviour, has not met the standards of nursing practice or the Code of Ethics, or is posing a risk to public safety you may have grounds to file a complaint with us.

In some cases, it may be more appropriate for the employer to address the issue through their own conduct procedures. This would be a suitable approach when patient and public safety is not at risk. The employer would be able to support the RN or NP to make appropriate changes.

If you have doubts about the best direction to take you may want to speak to the Director of Professional Conduct.
