Rahi, Roshanak, LPN

Hearing decision

Mar 14, 2024

​A panel of the Discipline Committee (the “Panel") of the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (“BCCNM" or the “College") conducted a hearing to determine, pursuant to section 39 of the Health Professions Act, RSBC 1996, c. 183 (the “Act" or “HPA"), whether Ro​shanak Rahi, a licenced practical nurse, failed to comply with the Act, a regulation, or a bylaw, whether she failed to comply with a standard imposed under the HPA, and whether she committed unprofessional conduct or professional misconduct, or incompetent practice.

​​The Panel found that Ms. Rahi committed professional misconduct when she provided cosmetic injectables without the ordering health professional being immediately available and when she acquired Botox by means that were not in compliance with the British Columbia's Drug Schedules Regulation, BC Reg. 9/98. The Panel further found that Ms. Rahi committed professional misconduct by making false statements to BCCNM investigators in relation to their investigation, and telling a representative of the C​ollege of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia and members of the Plateau Medical Clinic that she had received approval from BCCNM to provide cosmetic injections to clients without direct physician supervision when she knew that this was untrue.
