On July 12, 2022 a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and the Registrant wherein the Registrant agreed to conditions and/or limits on their nursing practice to ensure their fitness to practice. The terms of the Consent Agreement include but are not limited to:
A suspension of 12 months for breach of an interim undertaking, over medication of patients and failing to be forthcoming with their regulator; and
A limit on practice designed to prevent the circumstances leading to the practice concern from reoccurring.
The Agreement will remain in place for a minimum of one and a half years of continuous nursing practice following completion of the 12-month suspension.
The reasons for the Inquiry Committee decision are as follows:
The Registrant provided an independent medical assessment documenting health concerns to BCCNM which impacted their ability to provide safe patient care; and
The independent medical assessment identified the Registrant is not currently fit to practice nursing.
The name of the Registrant has been withheld in accordance with section 39.3 (4) (a) of the Health Professions Act for the purposes of not identifying the personal health information of the Registrant respecting the condition.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
