§ 1399.345. Out-of-State Practitioner Authorization to Participate in Sponsored Event.
(a) Request for Authorization to Participate. An out-of-state practitioner (“applicant”) may request authorization from the board to participate in a sponsored event and provide such respiratory care services at the sponsored event as would be permitted if the applicant were licensed by the board to provide those services. Authorization must be obtained for each sponsored event in which the applicant seeks to participate.
(1) An applicant shall request authorization by submitting to the board a completed “Request for Authorization to Practice Without a California License at a Sponsored Free Health Care Event,” Form 901-RCB (RCB/2014), which is hereby incorporated by reference, accompanied by a non-refundable, non-transferable processing fee of $25.
(2) The applicant also shall furnish either a full set of fingerprints or submit a Live Scan inquiry to establish the identity of the applicant and to permit the board to conduct a criminal history record check. The applicant shall pay any costs for furnishing the fingerprints and conducting the criminal history record check.
(b) Response to Request for Authorization to Participate. Within 20 calendar days of receiving a completed request for authorization, the board shall notify the sponsoring entity or local government entity whether that request is approved or denied.
(c) Denial of Request for Authorization to Participate.
(1) The board shall deny a request for authorization to participate if:
(A) The submitted form is incomplete and the applicant has not responded within 7 calendar days to the board's request for additional information; or
(B) The applicant has not completed a respiratory care program which complies with B&PC section 3740; or
(C) The applicant has failed to comply with a requirement of this article or has committed any act that would constitute grounds for denial of an application for licensure by the board; or
(D) The applicant does not possess a current valid active license in good standing. The term “good standing” means the applicant:
i. Has not been charged with an offense for any act substantially related to the practice for which the applicant is licensed by any public agency;
ii. Has not entered into any consent agreement or been subject to an administrative decision that contains conditions placed upon the applicant's professional conduct or practice, including any voluntary surrender of license;
iii. Has not been the subject of an adverse judgment resulting from the practice for which the applicant is licensed that the board determines constitutes evidence of a pattern of negligence or incompetence.
(E) The board has been unable to obtain a timely report of the results of the criminal history check.
(2) The board may deny a request for authorization to participate if:
(A) The request is received less than 20 calendars days before the date on which the sponsored event will begin; or
(B) The applicant has been previously denied a request for authorization by the board to participate in a sponsored event; or
(C) The applicant has previously had an authorization to participate in a sponsored event terminated by the board.
(d) Appeal of Denial. An applicant requesting authorization to participate in a sponsored event may appeal the denial of such request by following the procedures set forth in B&P section 1399.346(d).
(e) An out-of-state practitioner who receives authorization to practice respiratory care at an event sponsored by a local government entity shall place a notice visible to patients at every station at which that person will be seeing patients. The notice shall be in at least 48-point type in Arial font and shall include the following statement and information:
