Orlowsky, Ivan, LPN

Consent agreement

Mar 7, 2023

​On March 7, 2023, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement bet​ween BCCNM and Ivan Orlowsky, LPN, of Prince George, B.C., to address practice issues that occurred between March 6 and 18, 2022, related to not adhering to professional behaviour and communication with colleagues, and using profanity and undue force with a patient on one occasion during the provision of care. Following the incident, the Registrant sought assistance to ensure his conduct is not repeated, including enhanced stress management supports. This was considered mitigating by the Inquiry Committee. He provided positive reports from his current employment. 

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

  1. Supervision of their nursing practice for a total of 9 months;
  2. A limit prohibiting them from working with multiple employers or being the sole LPN on duty;
  3. Not to be in charge and no supervision of staff or students;
  4. Remedial education;
  5. A reprimand resulting from using profanity and undue force with a patient. 

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