Index of Administrative Law Judge Proposed Decisions on Paramedic Licensure

 

The following index is a list of cases in which the Respondent requested a due process hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. The proposed decisions, issued by the judge after the conclusion of the hearing, and the adoption order from the Director of the EMS Authority are provided below as hyperlinks to .PDF documents.  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 imposed, and the reasons for the modified decision.

Copies of Accusations, Statements of Issues, and other documents may be found on the Central Registry of EMT’s and Paramedics. Simply search for and select the individual’s name to see if there is a history of discipline. Please note that not all individuals whose licenses have been disciplined are reflected on this index page; only those cases that proceeded to a hearing and had a proposed decision rendered are shown here. However, 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.
