Consent agreement

Nov 21, 2022

On November 21, 2022, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and the Registrant wherein the Registrant agreed to conditions and/or limits on their nursing practice to ensure their fitness to practice. The terms of the Consent Agreement includes but is not limited to:

  1. A reprimand;
  2. Regular reports from treating physicians regarding compliance with treatment recommendations;
  3. Disclosure of treatment recommendations to relevant employer representative(s); and
  4. A limit on narcotics access and handling designed to prevent the risk of reoccurring circumstances that led to the practice concern.

The Agreement will remain in place for four years of continuous nursing practice.

The reasons for the Inquiry Committee decision are as follows: 

  1. The Registrant was identified as diverting narcotics medication from the workplace, being impaired at work, and engaging a client in an effort to obscure diversion activities.
  2. The Registrant provided an independent medical assessment documenting a health concern to BCCNM related to the misconduct and which could impact the ability to provide safe patient care; and
  3. The independent medical assessment identified the Registrant is fit to practice nursing, and they provided information regarding compliance with treatment recommendations.

​The name of the Registrant has been withheld in accordance with section 39.3 (4) (a) of the Health Professions Act for the purposes of not identifying the personal health information of the Registrant respecting the condition. 

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