Reprimand Issued and Conditions Imposed

In a decision dated September 8, 2020, the NANB Discipline Committee found that Jennifer Martin, registration number 025239 (the “Member”), lacked professional judgment, critical thinking, decision making and documentation and communication skills to safely practice nursing.  The Member misread an insulin order transcribed on a Medication Administration Record, did not check the actual order to confirm the dose, and administered ten times the ordered dose to a patient.  The Member also failed to have the medication administration co-signed by another Registered Nurse as required by policy, and failed to exercise critical thinking by not questioning if the mistaken dose was correct.  The Member then failed to document the administration of the insulin overdose and the resulting interventions, and did not complete an incident report. 

The Discipline Committee reprimanded the Member for not adhering to the NANB Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses, the NANB Standards for Documentation, the NANB Standards for Medication Administration and the Horizon Health Network Policy & Procedure on Medication Administration, Storage and Handling.  The Member had previously resigned her registration with NANB so the Committee was unable to suspend her registration.  The Committee ordered certain preconditions that the Member must satisfy before she may apply for a conditional registration.

In a decision dated June 26, 2020, the NANB Fitness to Practice (Review) Committee accepted the Alternate Complaint Resolution Proposal (“ACRP”) submitted by Samantha Jones, registration number 027307 (the “Member”).  As a result of the admissions made in the ACRP, the Committee found that the member’s actions (which included stealing narcotics from her workplace, falsifying patient charts and narcotic waste records, and lying to prescribers to obtain unnecessary increases in patients’ narcotics doses so she could steal the overage) constituted professional misconduct, conduct unbecoming a member and dishonesty.  The Committee accepted evidence that the Member is now fit to practice, and ordered that the suspension imposed on the member’s registration by the Complaints Committee in a decision dated April 24, 2018 be lifted and conditions be imposed on the member’s registration.

NANB Statement Regarding the Registration Status of Donna Collins

Over the past several months, NANB has received several inquiries regarding the registration status of Donna Collins. Donna Collins was actively registered with NANB as a Registered Nurse from 2000–2012 and as a Nurse Practitioner from 2012–2013. Her registration with NANB expired on December 31, 2013, after which she was no longer authorized to practice nursing or use the titles Registered Nurse (RN) or Nurse Practitioner (NP).  

Following a disciplinary hearing on November 22, 2017, Ms. Collins was reprimanded by the Discipline Committee and issued a fine for improper use of actual and fictitious nursing designations such as RN, NP, “RN+” and “DNP”, while not being a registered member of NANB.  Donna Collins has not been registered with NANB since December 31, 2013. She is not authorized to practice nursing in New Brunswick, to hold herself out as a person authorized to practice nursing, or to use such designations.
