Quebec: A woman who worked as a nurse at the Jonquière hospital for 20 years has turned out not to be a nurse at all, according to Quebec's Order of Nurses.

The order said this week it was looking into the case. The woman, whose identity has not been revealed, worked in several different departments in the hospital.

She had no training and was never certified.

Another employee with the regional health board became suspicious when the woman tried signing up to a training course earlier this spring. The suspicions led to an internal investigation, and soon after, the woman's firing.

The woman has the same name as another accredited nurse in the region, which is how she may have received a licence number from the order, according to Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS) du Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, the region's health authority.

"We're talking about producing fake documents, so the person was able to bypass our verification process," said Joëlle Savard, spokesperson for CIUSSS.

The CIUSSS has reviewed its procedures as a result, Savard said.

She said the "very serious … dishonest acts" were committed by "a skilful woman."

Luc Mathieu, the head of the Quebec Nurses Order, said incidents like this are rare.

Mathieu said the woman could be fined, and that both the order and CIUSSS are looking into the possibility of taking legal action.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
