On July 3, 2022, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Feizal Halim of Salmon Arm, to address practice issues that occurred during night shifts in March and April 2021 related to directing care staff to bring residents who would not sleep or rang their call bell frequently to the dining room, open the windows, turn off the lights, not provide coffee, snacks, or a blanket, and for refusing to assist a resident with toileting and communicating with the resident inappropriately and disrespectfully.
The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to a limit and/or condition on their practice, including:
A suspension of their nursing registration for one (1) week;
A limit prohibiting them from being the sole Nurse on duty;
Remedial education in ethics and communication; and
A regulatory practice consulting program to address the foundational issues underpinning this Agreement.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
