6 May 2014 - Health Care Complaints Commission v Khalsa (No 2) [2014] NSWCATOD 47 -

This was an application made by the Health Care Complaints Commission to the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal seeking orders for the cancellation of a practitioner's registration and a two year period before the practitioner can apply for reregistration. The practitioner made no submissions in response.

This was the second stage of findings regarding the practitioner's conduct. In stage one of the same proceeding, the Tribunal had found the practitioner, who was a registered nurse and midwife, guilty of unsatisfactory professional conduct relating to a home birth which resulted in the baby suffering oxygen deprivation. The Tribunal also found the practitioner guilty of professional misconduct for failing to make proper clinical records during the birth and for later submitting records that were false and misleading.
