South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners

LLR- Board of Medical Examiners

Approved by the Board Administrator: October 21, 1994

Service Area: Compliance

Subject: Conflicts of Interest

POLICY:

In situations involving complaints against a licensee who is a family member or close relative of an individual Board staff member, it is important that the actual existence or appearance of a conflict of interest be avoided.

PROCEDURE:

1. Upon hearing that a complaint has been filed with the Board office, any Board staff member who is closely related by birth or marriage to the licensee against whom a complaint has been made will make known to his/her immediate supervisor the nature of the relationship.

2. If the supervisor deems that the relationship is close enough to justify action, the supervisor

will:

a. Make note of the relationship in the investigation file and of his/her plans to

remove such conflict; and

b. Either stand in for the staff member in the performance of his/her duties with regard to the particular disciplinary matter, or delegate such duties to another individual not under the supervision of the potentially interested staff member.
