As regulator, what is the CPSO going to do about the behavior of some of your members who have become the biggest obstacle to recovery for car accident victims in Ontario?
It’s clear that many of the IME physicians in Ontario have not acted “with the same high level of integrity and professionalism as they would when delivering health care”. The attached Decisions document a multitude of violations of all 4 of the Principles listed on the CPSO Policy Statement #2-12. The flawed IME is routine and systemic and needs investigation and a resolution by the CPSO to ensure that ‘do no harm’ actually means something to ALL of Ontario’s patients, including car accident victims.
The failure of CPSO to enforce standards means this is playing out publicly in our courts after innocent and often seriously impaired victims have been abused by your members. From coercive ‘quality’ forms, bogus and biased medical opinion reports and testimony, to victims who are impoverished and go without recovery resources, to our overloaded social nets and taxpayers who must pay when insurers do not, to our courts having to deal with the ‘experts’, it is all in your house.
