A London nurse has agreed to never practice again after admitting to multiple allegations of professional misconduct while she was working at a long-term care home.
Standing before a discipline committee at the Ontario College of Nurses Monday, Susan Muzylowsky admitted to verbally, physically, and sexually abusing 19 patients over an eight-month period.
The college says the London home will remain confidential through a publication ban to protect the residents’ personal information.
Muzylowsky was a registered practical nurse at the facility from October 2008 to September 2014. She resigned in December 2015.
As detailed by the college, Muzylowsky’s abuse and misconduct include withholding medicine for pain and Parkinson’s disease, calling residents pigs and whiners, and touching or spanking residents on the buttocks.
Muzylowsky, who registered with the college as an RPN in 1983, has signed an undertaking to resign from practice permanently.
