Ms Nelvi Livermore – Enrolled Nurse - Cancellation - Unsatisfactory Professional Conduct and Professional Misconduct

26 April 2021

The Health Care Complaints Commission (“the Commission”) brought a complaint against enrolled nurse, Nelvi Livermore, before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (“the Tribunal”).  The Commission alleged that between March 2017 to December 2019 while employed as a patient transport nurse with Orange Base Hospital, the practitioner accessed the electronic health records of 13 patients on 154 occasions, in circumstances where:

  • she was not authorised to do so,
  • she did not have written consent ,
  • she did not have any clinical reason to access the records for those persons ( who were not her patients).

It was also alleged that the practitioner inappropriately accessed her own electronic health record without authorisation from the hospital.

In its decision dated 26 April 2021, the Tribunal found the allegations proven. The Tribunal cancelled the practitioner’s registration and prohibited her from seeking a review of the cancellation for six months.

A copy of the Tribunal’s decision can be found at the NSW Case Law website.
