Previous Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 19 Jun 1995

In June 1995, Dr. Johnson pleaded guilty to a charge of professional misconduct, as defined in s. 29(30) of Ontario Regulation 
548/90, as amended, in that he committed sexual impropriety with a patient.    The Discipline Committee accepted this plea 
and found Dr. Johnson guilty of professional misconduct.    Consequently, the Committee imposed the following penalty: 
   1. Dr. Johnson's licence to practice was to be suspended for a period of 120 days.    The final sixty days of this 
      suspension, however, were themselves to be suspended provided that he fulfilled the following conditions: 
      (a) Dr. Johnson was, at his own expense, to attend upon a psychiatrist acceptable to the Registrar and complete 
          such treatment in boundary and related issues as the psychiatrist considered necessary, to the satisfaction of 
          the Registrar.    In addition, Dr. Johnson, at his own expense, was to attend upon the psychiatrist not less than 
          22 months and not more than 24 months following the date of completion of the above-mentioned treatment 
          for a re-assessment of his psychiatric health as it related to this matter.    This re-assessment was to be to the 
          satisfaction of the Registrar.    Dr. Johnson was to consent to and direct the psychiatrist to report in writing to 
          the Registrar concerning the results of both the initial treatment and the re-assessment, which reports were to 
          be satisfactory to the Registrar. 
      (b) Dr. Johnson through his counsel was to express remorse for his actions and apologize to the complainant. 
      (c) Dr. Johnson was to have a third party present during the examination of all female patients, unless the patient 
      (d) Dr. Johnson was to have no contact with the complainant, except during the conduct of professional duties. 
      (e) Dr. Johnson was to post an irrevocable letter of credit in favour of the College in the amount of $10,000.00 for 
          a five-year period in respect of the complainant's therapy costs. 
   2. Dr. Johnson was to be reprimanded, with the fact of the reprimand to be recorded on the Register.    The Committee 
      also recommended that the Doctor's name be published.
