2. A nurse may not refuse to provide professional services to a person on the basis of race, colour, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, civil status, age, religion, political convictions, language, ethnic or national extraction, social origin or condition, a handicap or the use of any means to palliate a handicap.
However, a nurse may, in the interest of the client, refer the client to another nurse.
In this Code, unless the context indicates otherwise, “client” means any person who receives care, treatment or other professional services.
