Consent agreement

Jan 9, 2023

​On January 9, 2023, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and the Registrant related to diverting narcotics for self use on and off duty between 2019 and 2021. The Registrant disclosed diversion in the workplace on her own accord. The Registrant was diagnosed with, and admitted to, a disability with a causal relationship to the conduct issues via an independent medical report and has agreed to comply with treatment recommendations. 

The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to a limit and/or condition on their practice, including: 

  1. Compliance with recommendations of their treating specialist;
  2. Disclosure of treatment recommendations to relevant employer representative(s);
  3. A limit impacting access to and handling of narcotics, with concurrent medical monitoring, to support the stable return to fitness to practice;
  4. ​Limits on working overtime, night shifts and practising in high acuity or critical care areas. 

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