Physician Progressive Discipline
|Policy:||Physician Progressive Discipline|
|Policy Nr:||Sec 02 - 08|
|Target Review Date:||2019-01-18|
|Main Stakeholder:||Department Head|
The purpose of this policy is to establish the regulations and procedures pertaining to discipline and dismissal of physicians.
- outline the problem
- recommend expected course of corrective action
- set a specific review period where appropriate, and
- advise the physician of possible consequences
The Department Head should be consulted before the letter of warning is given to the physician.
A copy of all letters of warning should be sent to the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA).
If the letter of warning does not resolve the problem, the physician may be suspended or dismissed. If immediate severance is desired, immediate notice will be given the WRHA Medical Directors or the Shared Health Medical Directors responsible for the area in consultation with the WRHA or Shared Health, as the case may be.
