Tribunal dismissed complaint against Ms Maria Gonzalez

4 November 2009

The Health Care Complaints Commission recently prosecuted a complaint against an enrolled nurse, Ms Maria Gonzalez, before the NSW Nurses and Midwives Tribunal. The Commission alleged that Ms Gonzalez had assaulted a resident of the Rariro Unit of the Metro Residences at Westmead.

In its decision of 2 November 2009, the Tribunal dismissed the complaint, as it was not comfortably satisfied that the complaint was proved. The full decision will be available at AUSTLII shortly.
