Elizabeth Louise Stevens
Truro, Nova Scotia
CLPNNS Registration #9226
On March 11, 2019, the Complaints Committee of the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Nova Scotia (CLPNNS) issued a reprimand with consent to Elizabeth Stevens for professional misconduct. On April 1, 2019, Ms. Stevens consented to the reprimand.
The Complaints Committee issued a reprimand with consent in accordance with the Licensed Practical Nurses Regulations, section 35(3)(d), for the following reasons:
- Ms. Stevens misappropriated five (5) cigarettes from a resident of the facility, thereby failing to meeting expected standards of practice as a licensed practical nurse, as well as the policies of her employer; and
- Ms. Stevens accepted responsibility and accountability for her actions and behavior.
The decision further states that CLPNNS will provide information about Ms. Stevens should it be requested by any licensing body within any jurisdiction.
