Sec. § 632.310
Investigation of actions of licensee or holder of certificate by Board or Executive Director; authority of Board to request from employer complete name and work assignments of licensee, nursing assistant or medication aide - certified under investigation by Board; retention of complaints.


1.

The Board may, upon its own motion, and shall, upon the verified complaint in writing of any person, if the complaint alone or together with evidence, documentary or otherwise, presented in connection therewith, is sufficient to require an investigation, investigate the actions of any licensee or holder of a certificate or any person who assumes to act as a licensee or holder of a certificate within the State of Nevada. A complaint may be filed anonymously. If a complaint is filed anonymously, the Board may accept the complaint but may refuse to consider the complaint if anonymity of the complainant makes processing the complaint impossible or unfair to the person who is the subject of the complaint.

2.

The Executive Director of the Board may, upon receipt of information from a governmental agency, conduct an investigation to determine whether the information is sufficient to require an investigation for referral to the Board for its consideration.

3.

If a written verified complaint filed with the Board does not include the complete name of the licensee, nursing assistant or medication aide - certified against whom the complaint is filed, and the Board is unable to identify the licensee, nursing assistant or medication aide - certified, the Board shall request that the employer of the licensee, nursing assistant or medication aide - certified provide to the Board the complete name of the licensee, nursing assistant or medication aide - certified. The employer shall provide the name to the Board within 3 business days after the request is made.

4.

The employer of a licensee, nursing assistant or medication aide - certified shall provide to the Board, upon its request, the record of the work assignments of any licensee, nursing assistant or medication aide - certified whose actions are under investigation by the Board.

5.

The Board shall retain all complaints received by the Board pursuant to this section for at least 10 years, including, without limitation, any complaints not acted upon.
