RN Mina Moslemi – Professional misconduct and Prohibition order
22 Jan 2020
The Health Care Complaints Commission prosecuted a complaint against formerly registered midwife, RN Mina Moslemi, before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (‘the Tribunal’). The Commission alleged that Ms Moslemi breached the conditions on her registration when she worked unsupervised as a midwife at Nepean Private Hospital for approximately six months between November 2016 and May 2017; failed to tell her employer about her conditions; and lied to regulatory authorities.
Ms Moslemi admitted all the alleged conduct and did not renew her registration as a midwife.
On 8 January 2020, the Tribunal found Ms Moslemi guilty of unsatisfactory professional conduct and professional misconduct. The Tribunal confirmed the importance of protecting the public and maintaining the good standing of the midwifery profession and that such behaviour will not be tolerated.
The Tribunal determined that, had the Respondent still been a registered midwife, it would have cancelled her registration and provided for a non-review period. Ms Moslemi cannot apply for registration for one year and a prohibition order has also been imposed to prevent her from providing certain health services while she is unregistered.
The full decision is available at NSW Caselaw online.
