October's Medical Board Meeting Recap


At its regularly scheduled meeting on October 12, the Medical Board adopted three additional offenses to its list of disqualifying offenses for application for licensure. As the phrase suggests this is a list of offenses the Board maintains—which provide an automatic disqualification of any individual convicted of the offenses from applying for licensure.

The additional offenses adopted by the Board are as follows:

  1. C. 3721.66 Tampering or Unauthorized Use. This law prohibits anyone other than a nursing facility resident or the resident’s guardian from accessing or viewing the content a camera or audio recorder installed in the resident’s room.


  1. C. 2903.31 Hazing. This law prohibits a person from performing any act of initiation on another which could cause substantial mental or physical harm for purposes of membership in a student organization.
