Meeting was called to order at 12:30 p.m. by Chair, Dr. Dennis Harper.  

The minutes from the June 01, 2004 Board meeting were reviewed.  Motion was made by Dr. Moldenhauer to change the word “even” to “event”, and than approve the minutes.  Seconded by Dr. Mayo, carried. 

The Board reviewed a letter sent by a licensee.  The licensee had performed a pelvic examination and ordered a pap smear.  Examination showed complications, and the patient was referred to a Medical Doctor.  The licensee received a letter from the Board of Medicine stating the doctor was practicing medicine in violation of the medical act.  The Board reviewed Idaho Statute 54-703 (1).  The Board determined that the described procedure fell under Gynecology and not Obstetrics.  Pelvic examinations are taught in Chiropractic Colleges, and Part III of the National Board Examination deals with pelvic examinations.  

Motion was made by Dr. Mayo to have the administrative attorney, Roger Hales, draft a letter to the Board of Medicine explaining the Board’s position.  That Gynecological examinations are within a Chiropractor’s Scope of Practice; that Chiropractor's are trained in Chiropractic College to perform such procedures; that Chiropractor's are examined for such procedures by the National Board; and that the procedure the doctor performed was Gynecology, and not Obstetrics.  The Board will review the letter drafted by Roger before sending.  Seconded by Dr. Moldenhauer, carried. 

Dr. Sterling noted that he would get with the Bureau secretary to set up a date and time for peer review training. 

Motion was made by Dr. Moldenhauer to have the Bureau draft an insert to be added in licensing notices with information regarding Peer Review.  Dr. Sterling and Dr. Mayo will review this insert.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried. 

Motion was made by Dr. Sterling to go into executive session to consider application records that are exempt from disclosure as provided in chapter 3, title 9, Idaho Code.  Seconded by Dr. Mayo, carried. 

Motion was made by Dr. Mayo to come out of executive session.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried. 

Motion was made by Dr. Mayo to request that applicant, CHI-P3C-01-00-015, be invited to the next scheduled Board meeting to meet with the Board.  The Board will re-evaluate the applicant’s situation. Administrative attorney, Roger Hales, will check to see if the applicant has met everything required in the stipulation.  Seconded by Dr. Moldenhauer, carried. 

File CHI-P4B-03-00-004 was brought to the Board for recommendations for a stipulation. Complaint alleged excessive billing.  

Motion was made by Dr. Mayo to negotiate a stipulation of 90 day license suspension with 14 days imposed; one year probation; $1000.00 fine, respondent must pay all costs acquired, must complete a continuing education seminar on Risk Management within the time of probation; the Board will do a random audit of various patients’ records for the last six months; the Board has the right to do additional audits throughout the 90-day probation period.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried.   

If the respondent signs the stipulation, the stipulation will be brought back to the Board.  If the respondent does not sign the stipulation, than the case will go to a hearing. 

Continuing Education request for approval was reviewed.  

Motion was made by Dr. Moldenhauer to send a letter to respondent stating the seminar does not fit within the Board’s parameters.  The Board appreciates the quality of the seminar, but because the seminar is not being sponsored by a CCE approved school, the Board denies the request.  Encourage respondent to submit continuing education requests for approval prior to attending the seminar.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried. 

Board reviewed applicant DCA-GJH-1-10-2003 file.  

Motion was made by Dr. Moldenhauer to invite applicant to the next scheduled Board meeting to meet with the Board.  The Board will re-evaluate the applicant’s situation.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried.
