The Consequences of a DUI for a Healthcare Provider

This past year, the healthcare boards have stepped up their investigations of healthcare workers who have been arrested for DUI. The Boards have contracted with a company to investigate the arrest of healthcare workers. What we are finding is that shortly after an arrest; healthcare workers are being notified by the Professional Health Monitoring Program (PHMP) that they may be eligible for the Voluntary Recovery Program (VRP). The letter will inform the licensee that he or she should schedule a drug and alcohol evaluation with an approved evaluator, typically within seven (7) days. Failure to schedule this evaluation will result in your VRP file being closed and your information forwarded to the Department of State's Legal Division for further review and appropriate action.
