Dacanay, Ivan George, Former LPN

Consent agreement

Jan 19, 2023

​On January 19, 2023, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Ivan George Dacanay of Richmond to address practice issues that occurred in July 2021 related to sleeping during their shift when they were expected to be on duty, failing to administer medications on time, failing to follow institution and health authority polices related to resident fall assessments and documentation, speaking in an aggressive and disrespectful manner to a colleague while in a leadership role, and failing to appropriately assess a resident who removed their urinary catheter when there was potential for urethral trauma and pain/discomfort due to urinary retention. 

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 2 months;
  2. A public reprimand;
  3. A limit prohibiting them from being the sole regulated health professional on duty, working night shifts, providing regulatory supervision to nursing students, or orienting new staff;
  4. Remedial  education in ethics, professional  communication, documentation, and medication administration; and,
  5. Developing a learning plan, which will be shared with their employer and with BCCNM.

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