Summary of Board Actions

During its June 21-23, 2000 meeting, the Board voted to issue:

The Board directed staff to prepare four orders for disciplinary action.

Financial Disclosure Form

The Board is required by statute to prescribe a form used to notify patients or guardians that a doctor has a direct financial interest in an outside procedure or treatment agency where patients or guardians are referred. A financial disclosure form was reviewed and approved by the Board for immediate use.

Knowingly failing to disclose this information can lead to discipline under the Board's definition of unprofessional conduct.

Legislative Update

The Board voted to finalize four administrative rules. They will be sent to the Governor's Regulatory Review Council for review and approval.

The proposed rules are:

  • R4-16-102- Rehearing or Review of Board Decision
  • R4-16-106- Application for Licensure
  • R4-16-107- Application for Pro Bono Registration
  • R4-16-108- Application for Locum Tenens Registration
