Edmonton, AB – A CPSA Hearing Tribunal sanctioned Dr. Kevin Mailo of Sherwood Park after he admitted to unprofessional conduct.
Dr. Mailo was accused of demonstrating a lack of skill and knowledge when in 2015, he failed to follow up with a patient he had treated at the emergency room after radiology reports recommended the patient undergo further imaging for a suspected hip fracture.
The Tribunal accepted Dr. Mailo’s admission of unprofessional conduct along with a joint submission on sanction, and ordered the following:
- Dr. Mailo shall receive a written reprimand.
- Dr. Mailo must complete a Successful Patient Interactions course (this requirement was satisfied in 2019).
- Dr. Mailo shall prepare and fulfill a personal learning plan on follow-up on investigations generated in the emergency department (Dr. Mailo implemented required practice improvements resulting from competence interventions in 2019, which satisfies this requirement).
- Dr. Mailo is responsible for two-thirds of the cost of the investigation and hearing (final amount to be determined).
