Tattla, Sumeet, LPN

Consent agreement

Aug 17, 2023

​On August 17, 2023,  a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Sumeet Tattla of Penticton to address practice issues that occurred in May and June 2022, related to failing to follow established post fall policy, failing to respond to a short-of-breath client in a timely manner, and falsifying medical records to indicate that a response to the patient had occurred when it had not.

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 eight weeks.
  2. A limit prohibiting them from being the sole LPN on duty and requiring a registered nurse or supervisor to present for eight months.
  3. Direct supervision of their nursing practice for six months.
  4. Remedial education in ethics, responsibility & accountability, documentation, and working with care aids.
  5. A regulatory practice consulting program to address the foundational issues underpinning this agreement.

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