Occupational Nurse, Ms Sherri Cather

The RTBU was shocked at the media reports and action taken in relation to a previous occupational nurse for Queensland Rail, Ms Sherri Cather.

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) prosecuted Ms Cather after its investigation revealed that she had provided forged certificates to her current and former employers, which stated she was a registered nurse, and had presented herself as being a nurse during her employment.

Ms Cather has never been registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (the Board) as established under the National Law. Nor did she ever hold registration as a nurse in a state or territory of Australia under the nursing registration schemes that existed in each state and territory.

The RTBU has contacted Maurice Blackburn and they have advised if members appear to have had adverse effects from treatment by Ms Cather while she was employed as a nurse by Queensland Rail, or its previous entities, they should contact Maurice Blackburn for advice on 07 3016 0300.
