 A nurse at Victoria Union Hospital in Prince Albert, Sask., was fired in the wake of allegations he used excessive force and verbally abused a patient with a disability.

R.M. was a licensed practical nurse (LPN) with seven years’ seniority and no discipline on his record when he was fired on Nov. 14, 2011.

R.M. was working the night shift on Oct. 13, 2011, when he intervened — uninvited — in care that another nursing team was administering to a disabled patient.
