Respiratory Therapists

Koziebrocki Law will work with respiratory therapists to address complaints, investigations, and disciplinary proceedings at the College of Respiratory Therapists of Ontario (“CRTO”). We will work with respiratory therapists on the following regulatory issues:

  • Advising on compliance with the Regulated Health Professions Act, the Respiratory Therapy Act, 1991, and the CRTO’s Standards of Practice and Professional Practice Guidelines;
  • Assisting respiratory therapists with registration applications;
  • Responding to various inquiries at the CRTO, including drafting responses to complaints that are reviewed by the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (“ICRC”) at the CRTO;
  • Advocating on behalf of respiratory therapists at discipline hearings;
  • Representing respiratory therapists in appeals before the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board (“HPARB”) (e.g. where a decision of the ICRC has been made);
  • Assisting with fitness to practice matters;
  • Reporting past history, including criminal charges and findings of guilt, to the College of Respiratory Therapists of Ontario; and
  • Advising respiratory therapists on other practice issues that may arise, including quality assurance, employment and contractual issues, unauthorized practice, and privacy and confidentiality.
