Overview of the Complaint Process

One of the statutory responsibilities of the CLPNPEI is to investigate all complaints received from employers, members, clients, or the public regarding a licensed practical nurse in PEI. Any person can make a complaint to the Registrar.

CLPNPEI’s intervention begins when an individual concerned about a member’s conduct or practice submits, in writing, a complaint to the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Prince Edward Island.

When a complaint is referred to the Investigation Committee, a letter is sent to the complainant acknowledging receipt of the complaint and requesting additional information. A letter is also sent to the member informing them that a complaint has been received and that the matter is being referred to the Investigation Committee. A copy of the complaint is included in the initial letter to the member.
