On May 12, 2021 a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Manpreet Khattar of Surrey, B.C., to remediate practice issues that arose from June to August 2020 related to perinatal nursing practice. During the relevant time period, the Registrant had identified challenges with respect to fetal health surveillance, collaborative communication, following pre-printed orders and protocols, documentation, critical thinking and escalation of care, and basic perinatal knowledge including the pharmacodynamics of Oxytocin. Three learning plans failed to remediate the practice concerns.
The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms contingent on practice area. If the Registrant does not return to perinatal nursing, she must complete education on collaborative practice and a learning plan and meet with a BCCNM practice consultant. If she does wish to return to perinatal nursing, the Registrant must first successfully complete coursework on collaborative practice, critical thinking, and fetal health surveillance, develop a perinatally-focused learning plan, and then enter into an approximate six-month period of supervised practice.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
