Date of Action:

November 20, 2023

Nature of Action: On November 20, 2023, Tarndeep Samra, 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. to immediately inform CSHBC of all current and prospective speech-language pathology employers, including the name and contact details of their manager(s);
  2.  to disclose to all current and prospective speech-language pathology employers that they are under investigation by CSHBC in relation to concerns about their competency, and that they are bound by the terms of this Agreement;
  3.  to inform CSHBC of any changes to their personal contact information and employment details, including details of their manager(s), within 48 hours of any such change; and
  4. not to conduct any activity within the scope of practice of a speech-language pathologist1 unless under the constant supervision2 of a CSHBC approved supervisor during the investigation and, if a citation is issued, pending a hearing of the Discipline Committee.

Reasons: On October 29, 2023, CSHBC received a report concerning the Registrant from Surrey Memorial Hospital raising certain competency concerns. 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 an investigation or pending a hearing of the Discipline Committee. To date, the competency concerns remain unproven and have not been admitted by the Registrant.
