Ms Katrina Rivett
The Commission makes the following Prohibition Order under section 41A(2)(a) of the Health Care Complaints Act 1993:
- Ms Rivett is prohibited from providing any health service, either in paid employment or voluntarily, to any person.
For the purpose of this order, ‘health service’ is given the meaning as defined under section 4 of the Health Care Complaints Act 1993.
This prohibition order will remain in place until Ms Rivett can satisfy the Commission that any mental health condition she suffers from does not detrimentally affect, and is not likely to detrimentally affect, her ability to practice any health service and does not place clients at risk of harm.
The Commission will be so satisfied when the following conditions have been met:
- Receipt of a written report from a mental health practitioner who has been treating Ms Rivett for a minimum of 3 months that states she is no longer a risk to public health and safety;
- The completion of a risk assessment by the Commission that reflects a significant reduction in the risk of harm posed by Ms Rivett should she return to work in a heath related field. The risk assessment will require Ms Rivett to participate in an interview with a Commission officer prior to any decision to revoke the Prohibition order or amend the public statement.
