On October 7, 2022, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Order between BCCNM and Amandeep Sidhu of Penticton, B.C., to address practice issues that occurred in October 2020 for a neglectful act while conducting a neuroassessment; for bullying and harassing former colleagues; and for other misconduct unbecoming including not following infection control protocols; and failing to be accountable for his conduct.
The Registrant was an LPN, often the nurse in charge, at Summerland Seniors' Village and engaged in bullying and harassment of his former colleagues. Further, while conducting a neuroassessment on the resident, Mr. Sidhu acted in a neglectful manner. Despite overwhelming evidence, Mr. Sidhu failed to take responsibility for his misconduct.
Mr. Sidhu admits that his conduct amounts to professional misconduct and unprofessional conduct within the meaning of the Health Professions Act.
Mr. Sidhu has voluntarily agreed to the cancellation of his nursing registration and has agreed not to reapply for registration for any nursing designation for a minimum of one year. Further, he has agreed to partially indemnify BCCNM for legal costs arising from the investigation into his nursing practice through to resolution of this matter.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that these terms will protect the public.
