Mar 22, 2023

​On March 22, 2023, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Cons​ent Agreement between BCCNM and Robert Harris, RN of Prince George, B.C., to address practice issues that occurred between July and November 2022 related to knowledge-based practice, inadequate documentation, unsafe medication and blood product administration, communication of patient detail, and professional accountability. 

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 two months as a result of not adhering to standards related to documentation and safe medication administration, and for breaching a term of his interim undertaking with BCCNM on two separate occasions when he administered an IV medication and a blood product when they were not allowed to do so without supervision;
  2. A 24-month limit prohibiting them from practising in high-acuity, stepdown, or critical care environments;
  3. A 12-month limit prohibiting them from being the sole RN on duty, being in-charge, and providing regulatory oversight to students or new learners in the practice environment;
  4. A 6-month limit prohibiting them from assuming in-charge duties;
  5. Remedial education in medication administration, documentation, ethics, intrapersonal/professional communication, and critical thinking;
  6. A robust orientation including lab-based demonstration of clinical competencies prior to providing patient care;
  7. Direct supervision of their nursing practice for a minimum of 144 practice hours; and
  8. Development of 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.​
