OLYMPIA -- The Washington State Department of Health has revoked or suspended the licenses, certifications, or registrations of the following health care providers in our state. The department has also immediately suspended the credentials of people who have been prohibited from practicing in other states.
The department’s Health Systems Quality Assurance Division works with boards, commissions and advisory committees to set licensing standards for more than 80 health care professions (e.g., dentists, nurses, counselors). Information about disciplinary action taken against medical doctors and physician assistants can be found on the Washington Medical Commission (WMC) website. Questions about WMC disciplinary actions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information about health care providers is on the agency’s website. Click on “Look up a health care provider license” in the “How Do I?” section of the Department of Health home page (doh.wa.gov). The site includes information about a health care provider’s license status, the expiration and renewal date of their credential, disciplinary actions and copies of legal documents issued after July 1998. This information is also available by calling 360-236-4700. Consumers who think a health care provider acted unprofessionally are also encouraged to call and report their complaint.
In January 2023 the secretary of health suspended the certified nursing assistant license of Franklin M. Van Doren (NC60413258) pending further disciplinary proceedings. The Department of Social and Health Services’ Adult Protective Services determined that Van Doren abused a vulnerable adult.
In December 2022 the Nursing Commission suspended the registered nurse license of Catherine M. Dailly (RN00167662). Dailly drank alcohol during her shift at a kidney dialysis center and failed to respond to the Nursing Commission’s request for a written statement.
In January 2023 the secretary of health and Kurt Allgood (CG60795582) agreed to an order that suspends his agency affiliated counselor license. Allgood sent messages to four co-workers asking for sex.
