The state Department of Health took the following actions regarding Pierce County health care providers in April, according to a news release.
Also according to the release:
The Counselor Program charged agency-affiliated counselor Melissa Ann Marie Wright with unprofessional conduct. She allegedly falsely claimed to have a psychology degree in a job application and failed to cooperate with the investigation.
The Health Care Assistant Program granted the application of Jennifer Dawn Woolery and placed her license on probation for one year. She was convicted twice of driving under the influence.
The Department of Health indefinitely suspended the credentials of paramedic and nursing assistant Neale R. Porter for failing to participate in a drug-monitoring program.
Also, in March, the Nursing Commission placed the credential of licensed practical nurse Amos P. Brinkley III on probation for two years. He administered an extra dose of insulin to a patient without consulting other members of the patient’s medical team.
