If a clinician demonstrably fails to review the offender’s DECS history in preparation for an evaluation, repeatedly misses the due date for reports, fails to complete MDO reports in compliance with the standardized report format, or fails to meet in-person with the offender, the matter shall be referred to the Executive Officer to determine whether the clinician shall be removed from one or all panels. If the offender refuses to meet with the clinician then the clinician shall document their attempt to talk to the offender in-person.
If a clinician is referred to the California State Board of Psychology for alleged misconduct, the clinician shall notify the Board immediately of said referral and may be suspended from all panels during the pendency of the action at the discretion of the Board. A clinician disciplined by the State Board of Psychology shall be permanently removed from all Board panels.
If a clinician is charged with a felony crime in any jurisdiction, the clinician shall notify the Board of said charges and be suspended from all panels during the pendency of the action. A clinician convicted of a felony in any jurisdiction or failing to timely report felony charges to the Board shall be permanently removed from all Board panels.
In the event a clinician fails to qualify for entrance to a facility, the clinician shall be suspended from the specific panel(s) for three months in order to resolve the matter with the facility. If the matter is not resolved after three months, the clinician shall be permanently removed from the specific panel.
