Santiago, Edgardo, RN

Consent agreement

Jan 31, 2023

On January 31, 2023, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Edgardo (aka Jon) Santiago of Victoria to address practice issues that occurred in July 2020. The Registrant did not adequately assess a patient despite the patient having a significant medical history and current symptoms of concern. He observed the patient, asked peers what they had observed, and reviewed the charting of previous shifts. Then, he falsified a medical record by documenting a fulsome assessment he had not completed. 

​The Registrant voluntarily agreed to a five-month suspension during which he must complete remedial education on ethics and responsibility, medications, documentation, patient relations, and critical thinking, create a learning plan, and meet with a BCCNM practice consultant. Upon a return to work, his first five assessments will be supervised. He will meet with a supervisor to discuss his ongoing learning plan for six months and be subject to random documentation audits. 

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