Nurse Assistant Suspended for Sexual Contact With Disabled Person

By The Chronicle

The Washington state Department of Health recently released a list naming seven health care professionals who were sanctioned with official actions in May. In Southwest Washington, actions were taken toward health care workers in Lewis, Thurston and Pierce counties.

This is a sampling of the complete list provided by the Department of Health:

Lewis County 

The secretary of health suspended the certified nursing assistant credential of Ronald Lee Wilsey for at least 10 years after Wilsey was charged with two counts of indecent liberties related to a case where he allegedly had sexual contact with a developmentally disabled person. 

Thurston County 

The Pharmacy Commission suspended Victoria L. Wagner’s pharmacy technician credential for at least two years after Wagner admitted diverting narcotics from the pharmacy where she was employed.

 Pierce County 

The secretary of health indefinitely suspended the chiropractor credential of John B. Cornell after he failed to comply with a 2016 agreement that required him to pass a jurisprudence exam. 

The Health Systems Quality Assurance Division works with boards, commissions and advisory committees in order to set licensing standards for more than 80 health care professions, ranging from medical doctors to veterinarians. 

Information about health care providers is available on the DOH website at doh.wa.gov. Visitors to the webpage should click on the “How Do I” section for more information. The site includes detailed information about the license status of health care workers, including the expiration and renewal date of their credential, disciplinary actions and copies of legal documents issued after July 1998. The information is also available by calling 360-236-4700.
