Hearing Decisions, Media Release | Posted May 28, 2024

Edmonton, AB – Dr. Peter Idahosa, a general practitioner from Calgary, was sanctioned by a CPSA Hearing Tribunal for failing to comply with CPSA’s Closing and Leaving a Medical Practice standard of practice.

It was alleged that in 2022, Dr. Idahosa did not notify CPSA in advance that he was closing a practice location, did not ensure storage and disposition of confidential patient information, and did not properly dispose of medication, equipment and supplies, all contrary to the standard of practice.

Dr. Idahosa admitted to the allegations and acknowledged that his conduct was unprofessional. The Tribunal accepted a joint submission on sanction and their orders included the following:

  • Dr. Idahosa’s practice permit is suspended for one month, to be served starting Feb. 1, 2025 if Dr. Idahosa fails to complete the other orders from the Hearing Tribunal.
  • At his own cost, Dr. Idahosa must engage in one-on-one remediation with a medical ethicist, who must provide CPSA with reports on the remediation (which must be completed by Dec. 31, 2024). If the Complaints Director is satisfied with the final report from the medical ethicist, Dr. Idahosa’s suspension will be considered served.

Dr. Idahosa is responsible for 30% of the costs of investigation and hearing, to a maximum of $36,000.
