On December 19, 2001, a six-member disciplinary committee of the CPSO
produced an 18-page decision on the following complaints alleged by the
Hospital for Sick Children:
- Olivieri did not provide timely notification to patients and colleagues
after drug toxicity was suspected.
- The hospital could not get satisfactory answers from Olivieri to
several key questions involving her interactions with patients.
- It was unable to satisfactorily determine the degree of disclosure
Olivieri provided to participants during the study.
- Olivieri had fallen below acceptable medical standards by taking
frequent liver biopsies from her patients.
The CPSO decision states:
"In reaching its decision in this complaint, the (CPSO) committee has
relied on the analysis and conclusions arrived at by this highly qualified
and experienced panel, which concluded that
Dr. Olivieri did not fall below a reasonable standard
of care in any of the areas of concern raised in this complaint."
