Update: Saskatchewan nurse fined $26,000 for Facebook complaint about seniors' care

Carolyn Strom, RN

SASKATOON - A nurse who was found guilty of professional misconduct for criticizing the quality of care her grandparents received has been fined $26,000 by the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association.

Carolyn Strom of Prince Albert, Sask., was brought before a disciplinary committee after posting comments on Facebook.

Strom said her grandfather spent a week in palliative care before he died, and both he and her grandmother had received ``sub-par care'' in a long-term care facility for many years.
