On September 2, 2021 a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Michelle Goodman of Penticton, B.C., to remediate practice issues that occurred from November 2019 to March 2020, while the Registrant was instructing nursing students. The practice concerns included using a potentially contaminated syringe to administer medication to a patient, initially failing to report or document the contamination, and making what was perceived as an inappropriate comment regarding the patient's palliative status. Subsequent review demonstrated knowledge gaps in specific practise areas.
The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to a limit and condition on practice, including: educational coursework, a Regulatory Practice Consultation, six months of supervised practice, a limit to her practice in that she cannot be the sole RN on duty for nine months, or teach students for a period of 12 months.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
