Consent agreement

Jun 8, 2021

On June 8, 2021, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Zuhair Khader of Surrey, BC to address practice issues that occurred between June and July 2020 related to physical and emotional abuse of vulnerable residents under his care. This included rough handling and other aggressive conduct while turning or changing residents; not responding to call bells; and sleeping while on duty.

The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to a limit and/or condition on their practice, including:

a)A suspension of their nursing registration for three weeks;
b)A limit prohibiting them from being the sole nurse on duty, from working nights, or supervising, orienting and mentoring new staff or students;
c)Remedial education in the area of Working with Health Care Assistants and Duty to Provide Care;
d)Developing a learning plan which will be shared with their employer and with BCCNM; and
e)Regulatory Practice Consultations to address the foundational issues underpinning this Agreement.

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