A fake nurse's long history of impersonation
For a year, a 49-year-old woman in B.C. posed as a nurse at a Vancouver hospital, even assisting in gynecological surgeries, despite not actually being a nurse. Brigitte Cleroux has since been criminally charged, but it turns out she has a long history of impersonations dating back decades and spanning multiple provinces.
Now, former patients are left with serious questions about the care they received, and how she was able to even get the job in the first place.
Today, CBC Vancouver's Bethany Lindsay tells us more about those patients, and CBC Ottawa's Shaamini Yogaretnam explains Cleroux's decades of impersonations.
