On January 18, 2019, the Inquiry Committee approved a consent agreement between the BC College of Nursing Professionals ("BCCNP") and Margo Dalinghaus (the “Registrant’') to restrict her practice from the administration of cosmetic injectables.
Following receipt of a complaint, a CRNBC investigation in December 2017 indicated that between April and November 2017, the Registrant was practicing outside the scope of nursing by performing Botox and dermal filler injections on clients without the necessary supervision of a physician, without appropriate physician consultation of the client, and without a client-specific written order. The Registrant applied a physician's signature stamp to records, with the physician's consent, but when the client was not seen by the physician. Further, her documentation of the consultations omitted required information. She acted as a trainer in the industry, despite practicing outside of her scope. In sum, she failed to adhere to the following BCCNP Practice Standards: Medication Administration, Documentation, and Scope of Practice.
The Registrant cooperated with the investigation and, on notice of the complaint, provided a voluntary Undertaking to refrain from administering Botox or dermal filler injections pending the outcome of the investigation.
The Registrant agreed to conditions restricting her from administering cosmetic injectables or acting as a trainer of same for one year from the approval of the Agreement years and agreed to complete and provide proof of completion of accredited training courses on this practice.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that these terms will protect the public.
