The firm’s recent statement explains the importance of securing the services of an experienced lawyer as soon as one becomes aware of disciplinary charges being brought. This allows the defence team to mitigate the collateral damage that can be caused by clients unwittingly incriminating themselves in an effort to clear their name or dispute the allegations.
While disciplinary incidents are still relatively rare within the nursing profession in Canada, increased regulation across the health sector and understaffing have compounded the pressure that nurses and other medical professionals are under. Regulatory and professional hearings still carry the weight of a formal legal hearing with evidence presented and witnesses appearing to bolster a client’s defence.
Mr. Jaksa has years of experience representing clients who have been charged with breaches in the nurse-client relationship, failure to provide a duty of care, and any form of disregard for their profession’s ethical standards. Charges and allegations may come from within – from fellow staff members and management, or patients.
The College of Nurses of Ontario is the presiding regulatory body which governs nurses in the region. The organization is obligated to investigate all complaints made against its members. William Jaksa helps defendants assemble all of the necessary documentation to refute any allegations of misconduct. The team also has a detailed understanding of the Health Professions Act and the Nursing Act and the likely sanctions that clients will face if they are found to have violated the code of conduct stipulated in these pieces of legislation.
A spokesperson says, “Licenced professionals are always held to a higher standard by the public and by their respective professional licensing bodies and regulators. If you are facing a professional regulation complaint or have a pending professional discipline matter, it is important to have an experienced lawyer by your side.”
