Registration Revoked

In a decision dated December 10, 2021, the NANB Discipline Committee accepted the Alternate Complaint Resolution Proposal (“ACRP”) submitted by Luc Moryl Blaquière, registration number 019896.  As a result of the admissions made in the ACRP, the Committee found that Mr. Blaquière failed to meet the standards of practice expected of a nurse by failing to document according to the NANB Standards for Documentation, failing to document the narcotic count for five shifts, failing to perform a COVID-19 test, signing medications before administering them contrary to the NANB Standards for Medication Administration (as they were then called), and documenting a verbal order in a patient’s file when he had not received such an order.  

With Mr. Blaquière’s agreement, the Committee ordered that his registration be revoked, and that he shall not be eligible to apply for reinstatement with a conditional registration unless and until specific conditions are met.
