A panel of the Discipline Committee (the "Panel") of the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals (the "BCCNP") conducted a hearing under section 39 of the Health Professions Act (the “Act”), into the conduct of Coralee Lord, a registered nurse.
The Panel found that Ms. Lord breached standards established by the BCCNP under the Act and committed professional misconduct, as follows:
Being involved in an incident in which she swore at and acted unprofessionally towards her supervisor;
Making aggressive and threatening statements against her supervisor over a period of months;
Meeting and communicating with clients outside of working hours, in particular while she was on leave due to a workplace investigation; and
Buying beer for a client with Alcohol Dependency and then failing to document that.
The Panel also found that two allegations set out in the Citation against Ms. Lord, relating to threatening behavior and breach of confidentiality, had not been proven.
The full decision of the Panel can be found here.
The Panel will deliberate on the appropriate penalty and costs and that decision will be made public when final.
Inquiry should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
