Agency takes action on health workers

The Washington State Department of Health took the following actions regarding health care providers in Mason County in October.

 • The Nursing Assistant Program terminated the order of probation against certified nursing assistant Elizabeth A. Ashby.

 • The Nursing Assistant Program charged certified nursing assistant Staci D. Mann with unprofessional conduct. She allegedly failed to respond to department inquiries about a complaint.

The Health Department’s Health Systems Quality Assurance Office works with boards, commissions, and advisory committees to set licensing standards for more than 70 health care professions. For information about health care providers, go to www.doh.wa.gov and click “Provider Credential Search” or call 360-236-4700. Patients who think a provider acted unprofessionally also can call and report their complaints.
