Concerns about a Respiratory Therapist
Unlike other parties, employers have specific responsibilities for reporting events that result in a Respiratory Therapist being terminated, suspended or disciplined in any way.  Surprisingly, the College of Respiratory Therapists of Ontario (CRTO) finds that this does not always happen because supervisors, managers or human resources departments don’t want to involve the regulator for fear of the implications for the Respiratory Therapist or the facility.

If a Respiratory Therapist didn’t meet your facility’s expectations, we encourage you to submit a report to the CRTO.  There are many ways we can help.  Most times, simply assisting the Respiratory Therapist to re-establish and retain the standards of practice of the profession is all that is needed. Other times there is more involved.  Whatever the process, we will make every effort to ensure that the matter is handled with sensitivity.

If you would like to speak with someone before filling out the form to submit a report, please contact our Deputy Registrar at 800-261-0528, or within the Greater Toronto Area 416-591-7800, and dial extension 24.  To submit a report, please complete the following form.
