On the Florida Department of Health’s website under Florida Statutes for Florida licensed Chiropractors, there are 26 Statutes listed, along with many subcategories, for “Grounds for disciplinary action; action by board or department.”
Some of those reasons are as follows:
“Attempting to obtain, obtaining, or renewing a license to practice chiropractic medicine by bribery, by fraudulent misrepresentations, or through an error of the department or the board.”
“Being convicted or found guilty, regardless of adjudication, of a crime in any jurisdiction which directly relates to the practice of chiropractic medicine or to the ability to practice chiropractic medicine. Any plea of nolo contendere shall be considered a conviction for purposes of this chapter.”
“Aiding, assisting, procuring, or advising any unlicensed person to practice chiropractic medicine contrary to this chapter or to a rule of the department or the board.”
“Making misleading, deceptive, untrue, or fraudulent representations in the practice of chiropractic medicine or employing a trick or scheme in the practice of chiropractic medicine when such trick or scheme fails to conform to the generally prevailing standards of treatment in the chiropractic medical community.”
“Soliciting patients either personally or through an agent, unless such solicitation falls into a category of solicitations approved by rule of the board.”
“Being unable to practice chiropractic medicine with reasonable skill and safety to patients by reason of illness or use of alcohol, drugs, narcotics, chemicals, or any other type of material or as a result of any mental or physical condition. ”
This ends the information from the Florida Board of Health’s website.
