Consent agreement

Aug 18, 2023

On August 18, 2023, a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and the registrant to address issues that occurred in April 2020 related to impairment in the workplace. The r​egistrant was diagnosed with and admitted to a disability with a causal relationship to the practice issues via an independent medical report and has agreed to comply with treatment recommendations. 

The registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to limits and/or conditions on their practice, including: 

  1. Compliance with recommendations of their treating specialist;
  2. Disclosure of treatment recommendations to relevant employer representative(s);
  3. A gradual return to work, including orientation, followed by an assessment of skills and competencies for the workplace;
  4. Establishment of a mentorship relationship in the workplace for the purpose of oversight;
  5. Working day shifts only for a period; and
  6. Development of a Wellness Plan.

​The agreement will remain in place for a minimum of three years of continuous nursing practice. 

The name of the Registrant has been withheld in accordance with section 39.3 (4) (a) of the Health Professions Act for the purposes of not identifying the personal health information of the Registrant respecting the condition. 

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