Overview of the Complaint Process

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

PEILPNRB’s intervention begins when an individual concerned about a registrant’s conduct or practice submits, in writing, a complaint to the Prince Edward Island Licensed Practical Nurses Registration Board.

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 registrant 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 registrant.
