The Health Systems Quality Assurance Division of the state Department of Health recently took disciplinary actions or has withdrawn charges against these Clark County health care providers.

In July, the secretary of health ordered Ling Chen to cease and desist the practice of massage and pay a $1,000 fine. Chen, who doesn’t have a massage practitioner license, provided foot massage treatment to a client.

In July, the secretary of health ordered Mingyan Cao to cease and desist the practice of massage and pay a $1,000 fine. Cao doesn’t have a massage practitioner license, but provided massage treatment to a client.

In July, the Unlicensed Practice Program notified Rose Ngo of its intent to issue a cease-and-desist order. Charges say Ngo doesn’t have a massage practitioner license, but co-owned and operated a business that advertised massage services.

In July, the Massage Program amended a statement of charges against massage practitioner Karol N. Rich to reflect that Rich has submitted proof of completing continuing education requirements.

In July, the secretary of health ended revocation of the credential for health care assistant Mary M. Wakeham.

In July, the secretary of health suspended the certified nursing assistant credential of Barbara M. Naylor for at least three years. Naylor accepted checks from an adult family home patient to purchase candy and high-sugar foods for the patient, which violated the patient’s care plan. Naylor also kept a portion of the money for herself.
