A Saskatchewan nurse is fighting a $26,000 fine she received after posting critical comments to Facebook about her grandfather’s care in a long-term health facility.
Carolyn Strom was found guilty of professional misconduct by the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association (SRNA) in 2016 and handed the financial penalty.
She tried unsuccessfully to appeal her case last year and is to appear before Saskatchewan’s Appeal Court on Tuesday to ask that it overturn the earlier dismissal and quash the regulatory body’s decision.
Strom says the case has taken a toll on her health and she’s experiencing a range of emotions.
