Sears, Jacob, LPN

Consent agreement

Aug 18, 2022

On August 18, 2022 a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Jacob Sears of Vancouver, to address conduct issues identified in July and August 2021 related to improper access, handling, documentation, and wasting of narcotic medications specifically hydromorphone and sufentanil at multiple sites of employment at Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. His practice in this regard diverged significantly as compared with peers. He provided no plausible explanation. Jacob Sears voluntarily relinquished his registration on April 1, 2022 and is considered cancelled.  He has agreed not to apply for reinstatement of registration for five years. 

The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
