Report of Regents Professional Practice Committee to The Board of Regents
Your Professional Practice Committee held its scheduled meeting on April 10, 2018. All Committee members were present.
Professional Discipline Cases
Your Committee recommends that the reports of the Regents Review Committees, including rulings, findings of fact, determinations as to guilt, and recommendations, by unanimous or majority vote, contained in those reports which have been distributed to you, be accepted in 4 cases. In addition, your Committee recommends, upon the recommendation of the Committee on the Professions, that 43 consent order applications and 10 surrender applications be granted, with Regent Wade S. Norwood abstaining in one of those consent applications (Cal. No.30064) and Regent Catherine Collins abstaining in another one of those consent applications (Cal. No. 29842).
In the case of Seth G. Kohl, Chiropractor, Calendar No. 30120, we recommend that the joint application by both petitioner and respondent in this matter to amend the Application to Surrender respondent’s License that was previously submitted to the Board of Regents and granted by the Board of Regents on February 13, 2018 be granted, said previously submitted Application to Surrender License be deemed amended, on the consent of both parties, to show that respondent’s correct license number is “005269” and to delete the reference in such submitted Application to license number “005259”, said previously submitted Application by respondent to Surrender his License otherwise remains in effect, the Vote & Order dated February 13, 2018 regarding respondent shall continue to be effective, and the Vote & Order of the Deputy Commissioner to be issued herein shall be effective nunc pro tunc on and as of the effective date of the Vote and Order that was issued with respect to the February 13, 2018 determination of the Board of Regents in this matter.
These recommendations are made following the review of 57 cases involving fourteen licensed practical nurses, tweleve registered professional nurses, seven licensed practical nurses who are also registered professional nurses, two certified public accountants, one acupuncturist, one acupuncture professional limited liability company, one architect, one certified athletic trainer, one dentist who also has a dental enteral conscious sedation certificate, one massage therapist, one physical therapist, one public accountancy partnership, one registered professional nurse who is also a nurse practitioner (Family Health), one registered professional nurse who is also a nurse practitioner (Psychiatry), one respiratory therapy technician, and one veterinarian.
