Consent agreement

Sep 23, 2022

​On September 23, 2022, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Christopher Villaflor of Surrey to address practice issues that occurred in June 2021 related to performing a religious ritual on a client in public setting, without informed consent, and without consideration of the client's Indigenous heritage.

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 four months.

  2. A limit prohibiting them from being the sole nurse on duty for a period of one year.

  3. A period of mentorship in the workplace for one year.

  4. Remedial education in ethics, trauma informed care, and cultural safety & humility. 

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