the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003, determined that Adrienne Jane Rich, registered nurse, had been convicted of an offence that reflected adversely on her fitness to practise as a nurse.
The tribunal ordered that Adrienne Jane Rich's registration as a registered nurse would be cancelled and that she should pay 30% of the total costs and expenses of and incidental to the hearing by the tribunal and inquiry by the professional conduct committee.
The tribunal also directed that its decision (including Adrienne Jane Rich's name) should be published in the New Zealand Gazette, Kai Tiaki: Nursing New Zealand,
