Forrester, Aaron, Former LPN

Consent agreement

Jun 9, 2023

On June 9, 2023, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Aaron Forrester of Port Alberni to address practice issues that  occurred between November 2019 and May 2020 when the former registrant engaged in professional  boundary violations with a vulnerable psychiatric patient, and engaged in sexual misconduct with that same patient between December 2019 and April 2020. The former registrant provided direct nursing care to the patient between November 2019 and March 2020, and continued to engage in sexual  misconduct with that patient in the community until late April 2020 while the patient was  repeatedly re-admitted to hospital on voluntary and involuntary bases. 

The former registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to a condition on practice, including cancellation of registration and a prohibition on reapplying for five years.

In the event that the former registrant reapplies for practising registration in the future, the  former registrant will be required to satisfy the Registration Committee that he meets the requirements of fitness, competence, and good character.

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