Previous Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 19 Jan 2016
Summary:

On January 19, 2016, the Discipline Committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of 
Ontario found that Dr. Sherapartap Singh Rai committed an act of professional misconduct, in 
that he engaged in an act or omission relevant to the practice of medicine that, having regard to 
all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members as disgraceful, dishonourable 
or unprofessional. 

During the relevant time period, Dr. Rai practised in an emergency room at the only hospital in a 
small town.  He was also engaged in a sexual relationship with the woman in issue, Ms. A, 
throughout that period.  It was undisputed that Dr. Rai assessed, diagnosed and treated Ms. A on 
one occasion in a clinic and on nine occasions at the hospital ER over a number of years.  The 
Discipline Committee determined that the medical treatments did not give rise to a physician-
patient relationship, however.  It noted that there was no evidence that Dr. Rai provided regular 
care to Ms. A and that there was no evidence the ER visits were arranged ahead of time, or that 
there was another physician available in the ER to see her when she visited.  All of the treatment 
occasions constituted “incidental care.”  In particular, the Committee held that “given the context 
of the small town ER, Dr. Rai had no choice but to attend to [her] medical needs and to provide 
care for her problems,” finding that the ER visits were “incidental care to a spouse, given the 
nature of the visits and the unique set of circumstances in this case.”  The clinic treatment was 
ill-advised, but it did not create a doctor-patient relationship. 

Dr. Rai was found to have engaged in disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional conduct with 
respect to treating Ms. A at a clinic visit at which he performed a Pap test and ordered blood 
work, by treating a family member in a non-emergency situation.   

PENALTY 

On May 6, 2016, the Discipline Committee directed the Registrar to suspend Dr. Rai’s certificate 
of registration for period of two (2) months, to commence at 12:01 a.m. on May 7, 2016.  

The Committee ordered Dr. Rai to appear before the panel to be reprimanded. 

The Committee directed the Registrar to place the following terms, conditions or limitations on 
Dr. Rai’s certificate of registration:  

      Dr. Rai shall participate in and successfully complete the next available course on 
      “Understanding Boundaries and Managing the Risks Inherent in the Doctor-Patient 
      Relationship” offered by Western University, or an equivalent program acceptable to the 
      College, and shall forthwith thereafter provide proof of completion thereof to the College. 

COSTS 

The Committee ordered Dr. Rai to pay the College its costs of this proceeding in the amount of 
$4,460.00, within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the date upon which the suspension of 
his certificate of registration is lifted.
