Calgary Health News

Doctors and thousands of other health-care providers in Calgary and other Alberta cities could face automatic suspension of their licenses if they abuse patients sexually. This is due to new rules recently introduced by the Alberta legislature.

Before the Alberta legislature passed the first reading of Bill-21, which is an Act to Protect Patients, Hoffman pointed out that every Albertan should feel safe when they access medical services. She said that the bill was passed because she learned that a doctor convicted of sexual assault regained his license to practice. This meant that the tools available to Alberta’s regulatory college are not enough to protect Albertans.

However, Bill 21 outlines strict punishments and processes for health professionals who abuse patients. The bill includes sexual abuse and sexual misconduct. The new rules would become effective in April and cover up to 100,000 health care providers which include surgeons, family doctors, nurses, X-ray technologists, dentists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, pharmacists, psychologists, and psychiatrists.
