Bruneski, Christine, RN

Consent agreement

Aug 10, 2023

On August 10, 2023, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Christine Bruneski of Langley to address practice issues that occurred in 2021 and 2022. The registrant had poor narcotic and controlled drugs medication handling practices, breached the privacy of a patient, and once slept while on duty. After signing an undertaking with BCCNM, she breached four undertaking terms.

The registrant has voluntarily agreed to a four-week suspension for breaching a patient's privacy and multiple terms of her undertaking and having continued unsatisfactory practice in medication administration and documentation despite previous disciplinary and remedial activities. Following her suspension, she will have a Limit on her practice, specifically a two-month prohibition from independently administering narcotics and controlled drugs, followed by a further four months of mentorship and monitoring. She will also complete a Learning Plan.

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