Hi Sanil or anyone else. Would like to know some general guidelines for reporting a) sick doctors b) sick nurses. I'm thinking from a point of view of drink, drugs, mental illness

I guess I know general principles like

- Duty of care to patients
- Discussing the matter with my consultant, line manager, nursing director, clinical director or superintendent
- If close to person, supportive listening and brief account of problem
- Encourage to self disclose
- Urgency of matter depending on degree of risk to patients and degree of sickness
- AHPRA notification
