MEB-008: Issuance of Administrative Warnings by the Medical Examining Board

 
Issuance of Administrative Warnings by the Medical Examining Board: The Wisconsin Medical Society supports the issuance of Administrative Warnings by the disciplinary boards under the jurisdiction of the Department of Safety and Professional Services (including the Medical Examining Board) as a disciplinary measure when the board determines that there is substantial evidence of misconduct by the holder of the credential but determines that a disciplinary proceeding should not be commenced. An administrative warning may not be used as evidence that a credential holder is guilty of misconduct, but if a subsequent allegation of misconduct is made, the matter relating to the issuance of the administrative warning may be reopened or the administrative warning may be used in a subsequent disciplinary proceeding as evidence that the credential holder had actual knowledge that certain practices were contrary to law.
