“Definition of unprofessional conduct”
Arizona defines “unprofessional conduct” by osteopathic physicians and surgeons as including the failure to disclose patient medical records to other providers upon receiving valid authorization from a patient or their representative, failure to allow the board of osteopathic examiners to access subpoenaed records, failure to maintain adequate patient records, and dispensing or prescribing medications without properly documenting such act in a patient’s record. Osteopathic physicians and surgeons are also subject to discipline for unprofessional conduct if they commit felonies, engage in various deceptive or fraudulent acts, or otherwise violate the osteopathic physician and surgeon licensure laws.
