The Registered Psychiatric Nurses Act sets out, in law, the responsibilities of employers to report misconduct to the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba.
If an employer suspends or terminates the employment of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse or Graduate Psychiatric Nurse for alleged professional incompetence or professional misconduct, the employer must promptly report the suspension or termination to the CRPNM Executive Director in writing*.
There may be times when an employer is concerned about the practice or conduct of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse or a Graduate Psychiatric Nurse before suspension or termination has been considered. These concerns may also be reported to the CRPNM.
If you are an employer and would like to discuss the issue or if you are not sure whether you should report an incident to the College, please call the CRPNM Executive Director.
* The CRPNM must review all written complaints made against its members.
