REPRIMAND WITH CONSENT
Inverness, Nova Scotia
CLPNNS Registration #4991
On September 12, 2016, the Complaints Committee of the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Nova Scotia (CLPNNS/College) issued a Reprimand with consent to Christine MacKinnon LPN #4991, for professional misconduct and/or conduct unbecoming the profession. On October 7, 2016 Ms. MacKinnon consented to the Reprimand.
The Complaints Committee issued a “Reprimand” with consent in accordance with the LPN Regulations (2009) under Section 35(3)(d) for the following reasons. Ms. MacKinnon:
- failed to provide a plausible explanation for the misplacement of two medications ordered for two residents;
- failed to accept accountably when reporting for duty feeling tired and not able to see properly.
The Complaints Committee decision further provides that upon inquiry from any licensing body in any other jurisdiction, the College shall provide a copy of the full decision to the other jurisdiction in response to questions concerning Ms. MacKinnon’s licensing status.
