In independent adjudication hearings, the ASHA Board of Ethics has found three members certified in speech-language pathology—Jeanette Torella, Miyuki Hasegawa Alonso and Elaine C. Camps, all of Miami, Florida—in violation of the association’s Code of Ethics (2010).
By failing to provide direct (onsite) supervision of speech-language pathology assistants—in separate incidents—each violated the following:
Principle of Ethics I: Individuals shall honor their responsibility to hold paramount the welfare of persons they serve professionally or who are participants in research and scholarly activities, and they shall treat animals involved in research in a humane manner.
Principle I, Rule F: Individuals who hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence may delegate tasks related to provision of clinical services to assistants, technicians, support personnel, or any other persons only if those services are appropriately supervised, realizing that the responsibility for client welfare remains with the certified individual.
Each member received a sanction of censure, effective Jan. 16, 2015.
