On May 26, 2022, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Ryan Jay Tambanillo of Burnaby, to address professional misconduct that occurred between July and August of 2021, while the Registrant was employed by Fraser Health as part of the COVID-19 Deployment Team.
The Registrant was deployed to various sites in the Fraser Health region to supplement staffing shortages and provide community immunizations during the pandemic. The Registrant engaged in professional misconduct when he failed to attend four shifts without notifying anyone. He was late or left early on three additional occasions without justification or notification. Sites were left without the intended staffing levels on these seven occasions and the Registrant accepted full pay for the shifts he either did not attend at all or did not attend in full. The Registrant has cooperated with the Regulator during the investigation and acknowledged that his actions did not meet the professional expectations of a nurse.
The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to a limit and condition on practice, including:
a. A two-week suspension.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
