The Licensed Practical Nurses Act, 2000 (LPN ACT) establishes two statutory committees: The Counselling & Investigation Committee and the Discipline Committee. They manage investigation and discipline proceedings involving LPNs. The LPN Act prescribes the composition and the authority of the committees. The decision-making functions of the committees are independent of the SALPN and are supported administratively by SALPN staff.
The processes and decision-making of the committees are guided by the below principles of natural justice and procedural fairness:
• The right to be informed
• The right to respond to the allegations
• The right to be represented
• The right to a fair and impartial decision-making process
• The right to have the case decided by those that have heard the case
• The right to timely proceedings
• The right to be provided reasons for decision-making
