TORONTO – 

Sentenced to life in prison almost a month ago for murdering eight local seniors in her care, ex-nurse Elizabeth Wettlaufer is facing a disciplinary hearing from her profession Tuesday.

The College of Nurses of Ontario is to rule on a laundry list of professional misconduct allegations stemming from her crimes – the worst health-care killings in Canadian history.

Ontario’s nursing regulator said Wettlaufer verbally, physically or emotionally abused 14 patients and engaged in “disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional conduct” when she killed eight patients with insulin overdoses. The crimes occurred at nursing homes in Woodstock and London.

Wettlaufer resigned from membership in the college in September 2016.

Though Wettlaufer is serving life in prison with no eligibility of parole for 25 years, the disciplinary panel could revoke or suspend her nursing licence, impose fines or make her cover the college’s investigation or legal costs.
