Edmonton, AB – After admitting to charges of unprofessional conduct, general practitioner Dr. Nirupa Srikisson of Drayton Valley was sanctioned by a CPSA hearing tribunal.
The hearing tribunal heard that Dr. Srikisson failed to arrange for timely diagnostic imaging for a patient, did not create an adequate record for the patient and later made changes to the record without clearly noting the changes were late entries.
The tribunal accepted a joint submission on sanction and ordered Dr. Srikisson to undergo an Individual Practice Review with CPSA and implement any changes recommended from the review. Dr. Srikisson has already completed a course on medical record keeping and must also complete a course on ethics and boundaries. She is also responsible for 60 per cent of costs for the investigation and hearing (total still to be determined).
