Poirier, Tara, RN

Consent agreement

Aug 3, 2023

On August 3, 2023, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Tara Poirier of Langford to address practice issues that occurred in December 2021. While caring for a labouring person, the Registrant did not document numerous assessments or decisions, correctly interpret or classify fetal heart tracings, or appropriately titrate an oxytocin infusion and escalate clinical concerns. ​

The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to remedial terms and a limit on their practice, including: 

  • A reprimand for unsatisfactory documentation and fetal health surveillance.
  • Remedial education in documentation, collaborative practice, and fetal health surveillance.
  • Chart audits to ensure translation of education into practice.
  • A limit prohibiting the Registrant from acting in-charge or mentoring students for three months. 

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