Reprimand: Dr. Douglas Tweel

(May 9, 2007)

Whereas Dr. Douglas Tweel failed to attend in a timely way to the needs of an in-patient and her family in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital when requested to do so by nursing staff, and whereas on attendance, inappropriate methods of communication with the family including the use of profanity were used, it was the Order of Council that

  1. Dr. Tweel be required to write a letter of apology to the family of   Mrs. M.

  2. Council reprimand Dr. Tweel in writing.

  3. Dr. Tweel be fined a sum of $1500.00.
