Conduct Case Study: Part 1

What does honesty and dishonesty look like in nursing practice? Conduct Case Studies — a six-part series highlights various kinds of dishonesty that we come across in our conduct review process. They will show you how you can recognize risks to your practice.

**Conduct case studies are fictional and are intended only to demonstrate the potential for dishonest behaviour in nursing.**


Jane has been an LPN for seven years. She works on the PATH unit of a local hospital.

About a year ago, supplies started going missing from the unit — paper towels, gloves, bandages. About a month ago, clients starting telling hospital staff they were missing money from their wallets. Last week one of the clients reported that her diamond earrings were missing.

Jane was spotted on the hospital’s security camera going into patients’ purses and the employer launched an investigation. During one of the investigation meetings, Jane admitted to stealing and gave the earrings to the manager to return to the client. The client decided not to press criminal charges. The employer submitted a complaint to CLPNBC and an investigation was initiated.

What happened to Jane?
