EMS Authority Office of Legal Services - Index of Administrative Law Judge Proposed Decisions on Paramedic Licensure

The following index is a list of cases where the Respondent requested a due process hearing before an administrative law judge, and the proposed decision of the judge after the conclusion of the hearing. Clicking on the case number will open a .PDF copy of the proposed decision, and the order adopting the decision from the Director of the EMS Authority. The “Amended Decision” column contains links to those decisions in which the Authority did not adopt the proposed decision of the Administrative Law Judge. The Decision & Order link contains the final discipline that was actually imposed, and the reasons for the modified decision.

Copies of Accusations, Statements of Issues and other documents may be found by searching for an individual on the Central Registry of EMT’s and Paramedics and clicking on that individual’s name to see if there is a history of discipline. Please note that all individuals whose licenses have been disciplined are not reflected on this index page, only those cases that actually proceeded to a hearing and where a proposed decision was rendered are shown here. All individuals who have had their license disciplined, regardless of whether or not they requested a hearing, can be found by searching the Central Registry.
