On September 4, 2022 a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Jeremiah Isaksen of Nanaimo, to address practice issues that occurred from 2021 through March 2022, related to his conduct while working as a Community Health Nurse with a high-risk population. The Registrant requested that a coworker create false vaccination records for him and said/shared on social media that the COVID-19 vaccine was unnecessary, unsafe, and possibly lethal. He supplied an elder with edible cannabis products, outside of the elder's healthcare plan.
The Registrant voluntarily agreed to a one-week suspension for his conduct. He agreed to review informed consent and complete a course on ethics. To support knowledge translation into future practice, he will discuss his learning in relation to his conduct with a BCCNM practice consultant.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
