Filing a professional responsibility form (PRF) is the best way to protect your practice, reduce workload and promote positive changes for nurses and patients. Your license, your practice and your patients depend on it.
First, talk to your excluded manager about your concerns. Then, fill out the form. If you're not happy with your employer's response, you get to decide whether to push your concern up to the next level.
If you'd like to talk to someone, get in touch with the BCNU steward at your worksite, or your regional Professional Responsibility Advocate. Login to the
BCNU Member Portal or visit the regional representatives page to find out who's working for you.
Please note that Professional Responsibility incidents that involve violence should also be reported to the Occupational Health & Safety team asap. For more information, please see here.
