CBC also reported on the recent charges. Read the CBC article here 11 assault charges laid against fake nurse who worked at Vancouver hospital for a year.
The CBC article includes a quote from Scott Stanley, counsel for a number of patients treated by Cleroux at B.C. Women’s Hospital, who states:
“When people have been fooled, there can be a temptation to think it was at the hand of a genius. Often, it is a failure to follow basic common sense procedures,”
“These recent charges against Ms. Cleroux illustrate the need for institutions to have such procedures in place and to follow them.”
