Hearing Decisions, Media Release | Posted December 8, 2022

Edmonton, AB – A CPSA Hearing Tribunal has found Dr. Carey Johnson, a pediatrician from Calgary, not guilty of unprofessional conduct.

Dr. Johnson was accused of demonstrating a lack of skill and judgement while caring for a pediatric patient in 2015, including failing to take an adequate history, failing to perform an adequate physical examination and prematurely discharging the patient from the emergency room.

After considering the testimony presented at the hearing and reviewing the evidence, the Tribunal found the allegations against Dr. Johnson had not been proven and did not agree that Dr. Johnson had engaged in unprofessional conduct. The Tribunal also acknowledged the case’s tragic outcome as the patient passed away several days later, and extended its profound sympathies to the patient’s family.

The Tribunal’s decision can be reviewed in full via the link below.
