Whistle Blowing Reporting

Island Health’s Whistle Blowing policy supports anyone to confidentially and anonymously report - without fear of reprisal, harassment or retaliation - a known or suspected case of wrongdoing by Island Health staff, physicians, volunteers, contractors or anyone who is authorized to access Island Health information or equipment.

What can be reported?

Examples of wrongdoing can include fraud, theft, unethical conduct or misconduct, unauthorized use or misuse of public funds or resources, illegal activity, or noncompliance with any federal or provincial laws or regulations.

Whistle blowing reporting does not take the place of Island Health’s existing reporting and complaints structures such as the Patient Care Quality Office, professional practice processes or workplace safety reporting.

For other reporting options, visit our Compliments and Complaints web page

How do I report wrongdoing?

You can report a case of wrongdoing to Island Health any time by phone or by email. Your reporting will be received in good faith and treated confidentially.
