EthicsSayaka CaryHUMS 102-30BJill Tartaglione16 October 2016For the first case, the clinician's name is Mykeisha Frazier, LSW. The license number is 33005672A, and the date filed was August 9th, 2016. The clinician neglected her work, and had false documentation of her visiting her patients but did not. She falsified patient records to make it appear she had provided services to them that were not actually provided, and included false information about the patient's medical status, social status, and overall well-being. The clinician abandoned and neglected her elderly hospice patients without making reasonable arrangements for the continuation of services by documentation. This is a big problem for the client and the profession because of her dishonesty, and the client/patients are not getting the care they need. Her dishonesty and false documentation is fraud, and a joke to her profession because she is not taking it seriously. The clinician received five violations. The first ethical code 25-1-9-4(a)(3) section 1.15 by knowingly violating a rule regulating the social work profession when she did not ensure her patients continued to receive services when she was not visiting them. The second ethical code 25-1-9-4(a)(3) by not ensuring her patients continued to receive services when she was not visiting them. The third ethical code 25-1-9-4(a)(3) section 3.04 by knowingly violating a rule regulating the social work profession when she falsified patient records to make it appear she had provided services to them that were not actually provided. The fourth ethical code 25-1-9-4(a)(3) section 4.04 when she engaged in fraud, deceit, and dishonesty by documenting visiting patients she did not actually visit and including false information in the patients' medical status. The fifth ethical code 25-1-9-4(a)(1)(B) by engaging in fraud or material deception in the course of professional services or activities as evidenced by documenting as having visited elderly hospice patients when she did not actually see them. In order to remain ethical, advice that I would give the clinician is providing why she could not make it to her client's visits as well as not documenting false information that she was there. She should not falsify patient records either. For the second case, the clinician's name is Jackie A. Mower, L.C.S.W., L.C.A.C. The license number is 34005752A, 87001322A and was filed February 18, 2016. The clinician had a drug test that indicated positive results for amphetamines and benzodiazepines. She was terminated from Good Samaritan for using methamphetamine while at work, endangering the public by impairing her ability to practice safely. This is a severe problem for her client and profession because she is putting herself and her clients in danger by performing under the influence of drugs. She would not be able to exercise reasonable care and diligence due to ability impaired by the drugs. She could even hurt her client, being under the influence. The clinical received two counts. The first ethical code 25-1-9-4(a)(4)(D) in that Respondent has continued to practice although unfit practice due to addiction to, abuse of, or severe dependency upon alcohol or other drugs that endanger the public by impairing her ability to practice safely, reporting to work while under the influence of amphetamines and benzodiazepines. The second ethical code 25-1-9-4(a)(4)(A), as defined by 844 IAC 5-1-1-(15), by engaging in a pattern of conduct which demonstrates inability to exercise reasonable care and diligence as is normally exercised by practitioners. In order to remain ethical, advice I would give the clinician is to get help immediately. Her abuse of drugs can be very damaging to her health, and I would recommend that she goes to a rehabilitation center to seek help, or at least talk to someone. Before further damaging her health, I would highly recommend that she goes to a doctor and/or get some sort of counseling to deal with her addiction. For the third case, the clinician's name is Budd D. Teare. The license number is 35001150A, and was filed March 10, 2016. The clinician engaged in a dual relationship with an IWU alumnus, F.C. including inappropriate email communication, while F.C. was his student and continuing after she graduated. He also engaged in a second dual relationship with a student, K.K., blurring the lines of an appropriate supervisor-student relationship. He was removed
