PA SENATE PASSES A BILL REQUIRING PHYSICIANS AND OTHER LICENSEES TO REPORT ARREST

The PA State Senate passed a Bill that would require physicians, accountants, and others who hold a license, certificate or registration from the Pennsylvania Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs to report arrests or professional disciplinary sanctions against them within thirty (30) days. This Bill would also set guidelines for the Bureau in suspending and revoking licenses. Under SB 354, if an incident is not reported within thirty (30) days, the Licensing Board could take disciplinary action. SB 354 still needs to be approved by the House to become law.

Presently, all nurses are required to report pending criminal charges within thirty (30) days of the filing of the criminal charges.
