In 2006, the Tribunal found that Martin's conviction reflected adversely on her fitness to practise nursing, but rather than cancelling her registration, opted to place strict conditions on her practice (HPDT 45/ Nur05/19P).
She was found guilty of misconduct, had conditions placed on her practice and was ordered to pay costs totalling $15,000 (HPDT 27/OT05/14D).
The physiotherapist was found guilty of wilfully misleading or attempting to mislead the corporation the result of which payment was received (HPDT 96/Phys06/43P).
The second physiotherapy case considered by the Tribunal also related to fraudulent activity, but of a more serious nature (HPDT 76/Phys06/45P).
The case heard by the Tribunal that most closely compares with the two physiotherapists involves an osteopath who was an ACC provider (HPDT 84/ Ost06/42P).
The consistency between the osteopath and the physiotherapists is in marked contrast to the outcome of a hearing concerning the criminal activity of a pharmacist convicted of eighteen charges of forgery and four charges of using a document for pecuniary advantage (HPDT 60/ Phar06/30P).
