§ 1379.28. Audit and Sanctions for Noncompliance.
(a) The division shall audit once every two years a random sample of midwives who have reported compliance with the continuing education requirement. No midwife shall be subject to random audit more than once every four (4) years. Those midwives selected for audit shall be required to document their compliance with the continuing education requirements of Section 2518 of the code and this article.
(b) Any midwife who is found not to have completed the required number of hours of approved continuing education will be required to make up any deficiency during the next biennial renewal period. Such midwife shall document to the division the completion of any deficient hours identified by audit. Any midwife who fails to make up the deficient hours during the following renewal period shall be ineligible for renewal of his/her license to practice midwifery until such time as the deficient hours of continuing education are documented to the division.
(c) It shall constitute unprofessional conduct for any midwife to misrepresent his/her compliance with the provisions of this article.
(d) The division requires that each midwife retain for a minimum of four years records of all continuing education programs attended, including the title of the course or program attended, the length of the course or program, the number of continuing education hours, the sponsoring organization and the accrediting organization, if any, which may be needed in the event of an audit by the division.
