RULE §465.35Resolution of Allegations of Board Rule Violations

(a) When a licensee believes that there may have been an ethical or Board rule violation by another licensee that does not involve harm or potential harm to any member of the public, the licensee may attempt to resolve the issue by bringing it to the attention of that individual if informal resolution would not violate any confidentiality rights that may be involved. Licensees shall report any unresolved rule violations to the Board.

(b) A licensee must report conduct by a licensee that appears to involve harm or the potential for harm to any individual, or a violation of Board rule, a state law or federal law.

(c) A licensee must cooperate with any investigation conducted by the Board, including providing all requested information to the Board's Enforcement Division for thorough investigation of the complaint. Disclosure of patient information in an investigation is authorized by §611.006(a)(1) and (2) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
