Three year conditional registration order for failure to keep records


Members of the team acted for a healthcare regulator with regard to Mr P, who faced allegations of multiple failures in record-keeping over a period of six months and separate instances of inadequate patient care.

Mr P appeared before the fitness to practise panel which stated that record-keeping was a key clinical tool and that failure to keep records put patients at risk. The panel found Mr P guilty of misconduct as his lack of insight and nonchalant attitude regarding professional development could put patients at risk.

The panel also ruled that public confidence in the profession and in the regulator would be undermined if a judgment of impairment was not made. It therefore found Mr P to be impaired by reason of misconduct and imposed a conditional registration order on him for a period of three years.

Nicole Curtis, Neil Wilks and Kerra Jelbert dealt with this matter.
