Dr Mahbub Hasan – Medical Practitioner – Suspended for unsatisfactory professional conduct and professional misconduct

18 May 2022

The Health Care Complaints Commission prosecuted a complaint against Dr Mahbub Hasan, medical practitioner, before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (‘The Tribunal’). It was alleged that between February and May 2019, while working at Kareena Private Hospital, Dr Hasan engaged in inappropriate conduct towards a female registered nurse, including several inappropriate comments and inappropriate touching of the nurse on a number of occasions.

On 12 October 2021, the Tribunal found Dr Hasan guilty of unsatisfactory professional conduct and professional misconduct. The Tribunal found that Dr Hasan’s conduct was unacceptable and breached personal boundaries. The Tribunal deferred protective orders to a  further (Stage 2) hearing. The full (Stage 1) decision can be found here.

In its Stage 2 decision of 11 May 2022, the Tribunal noted the suspension order that had been placed on the registration of Dr Hasan on 16 July 2020 by the Medical Council, and determined that Dr Hasan’s registration should suspended until 30 June 2022. After 30 June 2022, Dr Hasan will have to comply with conditions on his registration to further protect public health and safety. The full Stage 2 decision can be found here: NSW Caselaw
