Unlicensed BC Nurse Class Action Lawsuit
Slater Vecchio LLP has filed a class lawsuit against the Provincial Health Services Authority due to their negligence in permitting Brigitte Cleroux, an unlicensed nurse, to perform “care” on its patients.
From at least June 2020 to June 2021, Brigette Cleroux worked at BC Women’s Hospital and Health Care and cared for numerous different patients. At all times while working at the Hospital, Cleroux displayed herself as being a licensed and registered nurse in British Columbia. While in actuality, at no time while Cleroux worked at the Hospital, was she legally allowed to give treatment and care to patients.
Cleroux was recently charged with fraud over $5000 and personation with intent to gain advantage. However, these criminal charges are only punitive against Cleroux, and offer no relief to the women harmed by Cleroux’s “care”. Slater Vecchio LLP has filed a class-action lawsuit to represent all individuals who suffered harm or loss due to the Provincial Health Services Authority’s alleged negligence.
The Notice of Civil Claim states that the Provincial Health Services Authority was negligent in their implementation of proper screening procedures, failure to supervise nurses, detect that Cleroux was not qualified, and failure to notify patients affected by Cleroux’s care, amongst others. Due to the alleged negligence, class members suffered psychological injuries, substandard treatment, and personal injury from improper conduct administered by Cleroux.
The Provincial Health Services Authority sent out letters to all of those in BC that were treated by Cleroux. If this includes you, please fill out the contact form on this page.
