On November 3, 2022 a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Bionic Nicolas, Registered Nurse, of Surrey B.C., to address practice issues that occurred on April 14, 2022, related to unsafe medication practices resulting in a medication error involving several medications, and being dishonest with the employer, a colleague, and a patient about the matter.
The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to a limit and/or condition on their practice, including:
A reprimand and suspension of their nursing registration for 4 months;
Supervision of their nursing practice for two years;
A limit for two years prohibiting them from multiple employers, being the sole RN on duty, assuming the charge role duties, working overtime, or supervision of students or staff;
A series of counselling sessions to focus on issues regarding truthfulness and accountability within a professional context.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
