Chase, Janeen, Former LPN

Consent agreement

Mar 24, 2021

​On March 24, 2021, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Janeen Chase of Kamloops B.C., to remediate practice issues that occurred between January 2018 and August 2019 related to clinical decision making, assessment, documentation, a failure to escalate a resident's care, and a failure to respond to the regulator.

Ms. Chase allowed her registration to lapse during the course of investigation.

Should Ms. Chase return to practise having been deemed to meet the character, competence and fitness requirements of registration, she has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to conditions on practice, including:

  • Limits on practice including: working under the oversight of another regulated nurse, not acting in a charge nurse capacity, and not supervising students for a period of six months.
  • Remedial education in documentation, clinical decision making, medication administration, and care of deteriorating patients, and the creation of a learning plan prior to return to practice.
  • Ms. Chase will undergo a practice consultation with a BCCNM Regulatory Practice Consultant to support the formation of her learning plan.

Ms. Chase also consents to a reprimand for her conduct of: failing to appropriately assess a resident, document her assessment and escalate care on July 5, 2019; multiple instances of poor documentation which did not demonstrate assessment and clinical decision making, a failure to self-regulate when she was in poor health, and a failure to respond to the regulator.

The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
