Consent order

Jul 14, 2022

On July 14, 2022, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved an Order under section 37.1 of the Act to address the conduct of Barbara (Trish) Berg that occurred between December 2020 and August 2021 in Maple Ridge, B.C., namely the failure to report incidents of resident abuse in accordance with agency policy and to complete required incident report forms, and the failure to engage with or respond to BCCNM during its investigation. 

The Registrant has consented to conditions on her registration and other terms, including: 

  1. A public reprimand;

  2. A suspension of her nursing registration for 2 months;

  3. Remedial education related to reporting abuse and protecting vulnerable adults, professional  accountability and  responsibility, and  ethical  practice, to  be completed prior to any return to any work with vulnerable population; and

  4. The payment of costs for BCCNM's investigation.

In making the Order, the Inquiry Committee took into account the Registrant's willingness to accept responsibility for her conduct as well as considered the existence of mitigating factors in the Registrant's personal circumstances. The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the conditions and terms of the Order will protect the public.
