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Health Systems Quality Assurance Division of the state Department of Health recently took disciplinary actions or has withdrawn charges against these Clark County health care providers.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 August, the secretary of health denied an agency-affiliated counselor credential to Sally Jean Bovee. In 2015, Bovee was convicted of first-degree criminal trespass, attempted bail jumping, and fourth-degree assault. Bovee didn’t provide proof of having undergone a required substance-use evaluation.
In September, the Dental Commission entered an agreement with dentist Donald Ray Lunt that fines him $5,000 and requires him to reimburse the commission for $5,582 in expenses. The dentist must pass a jurisprudence exam and complete continuing education in documentation and recordkeeping, nerve injury and repair, and pathology. Lunt didn’t meet the standard of care in treating a patient who had a fibrous growth in her mouth. The patient was subsequently diagnosed with an irreparable nerve injury.
In September, the Chemical Dependency Professional Program indefinitely suspended the chemical dependency professional trainee credential of Christopher L. Standridge, who didn’t comply with a substance- abuse monitoring contract.
In September, the Unlicensed Practice Program entered an agreement with Keith Scott Jr. that requires him to cease and desist from performing massage therapy without a license, and to pay a $200 fine. Scott, who advertised massage therapy services, performed massage therapy even though he’s never had a license.
In September, the Dental Commission charged dentist and dentist moderate sedation with parenteral agents permit holder Liem Duy Do with unprofessional conduct. Charges say Do’s treatment records for three patients don’t match or support the treatment provided, that he billed for treatment that isn’t in a patient record, and that he told a patient he didn’t have time to answer questions about treatment.
