When you have a concern about a nurse or midwife's practice, we recommend:
if possible, you discuss the problem directly with the nurse/midwife, the nurse/midwife’s supervisor or both.
you consider pursuing the matter with the
Patient Care Quality Office and/or health care agency where the nurse or midwife works if your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction after speaking to the nurse/midwife and/or supervisor.
Regardless of how (or whether) you attempt to address your concern directly with the nurse/midwife or health care agency, you can always submit a written complaint to BCCNM.
