If a violation of the law has occurred, the Board will impose disciplinary action to include the following:
Issue a decree of censure
Prescribe a licensee's scope of practice, place of practice or supervision of practice, the duration of a license or a certificate or the type or condition of patient served by a licensee/certificate holder.
Suspend a license/certificate for a period prescribed by the Board
Revoke a license or certificate
The Board may also dismiss a complaint. When a complaint is dismissed, it does not necessarily mean that the Board agrees with or condones the actions of the licensee or certificate holder; it means that the Board had no jurisdiction or could not find evidence of a violation of law. If the Board does not find a violation of law, but has concerns with a P.T. or P.T.A.'s conduct, the Board may issue a Letter of Concern. A Letter of Concern is a non-disciplinary action, but it is part of the public record as are disciplinary actions. If there is no violation of law, or if the complaint is without merit, the Board will dismiss the case.
