The ASHA Board of Ethics has found speech-language pathologist Charla L. Douglas of Russellville, Tenn., in violation of the association's Code of Ethics (2010).
By keeping inaccurate and inadequate records and admittedly taking records out of the school building, the respondent violated:
Principle I, Rule M: Individuals shall adequately maintain and appropriately secure records of professional services rendered, research and scholarly activities conducted, and products dispensed, and they shall allow access to these records only when authorized or when required by law.
By submitting billing and keeping therapy notes for dates the children were not present at school, the respondent violated:
Principle I, Rule O: Individuals shall not charge for services not rendered, nor shall they misrepresent services rendered, products dispensed, or research and scholarly activities conducted.
By the respondent's inability to substantiate the delivery of services with appropriate documentation, the respondent violated:
