Hughes, Katie, RN

Consent agreement

Jul 8, 2022

On July 8, 2022, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Katie Hughes of Maple Ridge, to address conduct that occurred between November 2020 and January 2021 related to assuming care of residents in a long-term care facility while physically unfit to practice and providing medication (Tylenol) for administration to an unregulated care aide.

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

  1. A suspension of their nursing registration for three weeks;

  2. Remedial education in professional accountability and medication administration; and

  3. 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.
