On July 22, 2022, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Sunpreet Ahuja of Delta, B.C., to address practice issues that occurred on January 9, 2022, when the Registrant failed to assess, document, or escalate care immediately for a diabetic resident who demonstrated a reduced level of consciousness and a critically low capillary blood glucose. The Registrant failed to follow the facility's hypoglycemia management policy when they failed to notify the RN in-charge or the physician of the resident's critical status and practiced outside LPN scope of practice when they independently administered an incorrect dose of dextrose tablets.
The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to a limit and/or condition on their practice, including:
A public reprimand and a suspension of their nursing registration for one week;
Remedial education in documentation, communications, clinical decision-making, and sharpening critical thinking skills;
Indirect supervision of their nursing practice for 3 months;
Developing a learning plan which will be shared with their supervisor and with BCCNM.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
