Date of Action:

January 29, 2024

Nature of Action: On January 29, 2024, Sabitha Anirudhan Bhavaniveli, RSLP (the “Registrant”) voluntarily entered into an Undertaking and Consent Agreement pursuant to section 35(1)(a) of the Health Professions Act (the “Act”). Under the Agreement, the Registrant agreed to the following temporary limits/conditions on their practice: 

  1. The Registrant undertakes and agrees to limit their place of employment to the Centre for Child Development in Surrey, BC.
  2. The Registrant undertakes and agrees to inform the Centre for Child Development in Surrey, BC that they are under investigation by CSHBC in relation to concerns about their clinical competency and to provide evidence to CSHBC they have done so.
  3. The Registrant undertakes and agrees to inform CSHBC of any changes to their personal contact information and employment details, including details of their manager(s) and supervisors within 48 hours of any such change.
  4. The Registrant acknowledges and agrees that they will not be permitted to commence training towards any CSHBC Certification Program for the duration of this Agreement. 

Reasons: On or around December 19, 2023, CSHBC received a report concerning the Registrant from Lions Gate Hospital raising certain competency concerns in an acute hospital setting. A panel of the CSHBC Inquiry Committee considered the concerns serious and requested that the Registrant voluntarily enter into the Agreement to protect the public during the investigation or, if a citation is issued, pending a hearing of the Discipline Committee into this matter. To date, the competency concerns remain unproven and have not been admitted by the Registrant.
