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Health Systems Quality Assurance Division of the state Department of Health recently took disciplinary actions or has withdrawn charges against these Clark County health care providers.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 Chiropractic Commission entered an agreement with chiropractor John Anthony Lewis that fines him $2,500. He must complete continuing education in radiographic quality, and in professional boundaries and ethics. Lewis took radiographs that were of poor diagnostic quality. A patient said Lewis kissed her on the back of the head while the patient was receiving treatment. Lewis denied kissing the patient.

In July, the Nursing Commission withdrew a statement of charges against registered nurse Shinon Vanessa Delong.

In August, the Nursing Commission indefinitely suspended the registered nurse credential of Glenn E. Yauney. After misrepresenting himself as an employee to gain access to a health care facility where he had formerly worked, Yauney unsuccessfully tried to get prescription paper from a current employee.

In August, the Medical Commission entered an agreement with physician Daniel Alexander Clayton that indefinitely suspends his credential. Clayton didn’t comply with a series of substance abuse monitoring contracts and programs.

In August, the Nursing Commission conditionally granted a registered nurse credential to Katherine Ann Foutch and ordered her to participate in a substance abuse monitoring program. On her application, Foutch stated she is a recovering alcoholic.
