Fine of $250.00 for therapists who were not slated for audit and double the amt. of CEUs not completed.
Fine of $500.00 for therapists who were slated for audit and double the amt. of CEUs not completed.
Be Aware If You Do Not Renew And Attempt To Work Without A License (Lapsed Licensure - No Licensure)
Therapists who do not renew on time will be terminated and must reinstate. (Reinstatement forms are on our Forms and Applications page.) At the February 2007 meeting the Board discussed guidelines for legal counsel to take actions against individuals who have worked without proper license. The Board charged legal counsel and staff to issue Agreed Orders to those individuals found to have worked illegally, with suspensions of up to two (2 weeks) and fines up to $750 ($50 per day). Any other lapse for therapist fined over $750 and suspended more than two (2) weeks; would need approval by the Board at its next scheduled meeting before a license could be reissued or reinstated, to work again.
Online KY Status Verification Now Available
The KBRC now has online primary source verification of respiratory care therapists. This is for verification only. All other information must be requested by contacting the KBRC Board directly. Newly licensed therapists may take several days to be listed and may be verified by the KBRC by fax if needed. If all that is needed is verification in hand from the KBRC, simply print details page from browser printer and end verification process.
