Social worker falsified documents; will not renew license

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 1:46 pm

On November 8, 2013, licensed clinical social worker Yolanda Harvey entered into a consent agreement and order with the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners to not renew her license (which expired 11/30/13). The Board’s document states that Harvey’s employer entered into a contract with a regional mental health authority which required those employees who conducted intake assessment to become credentialed as Certified Assessors. Harvey was the only employee who was qualified to complete other employees’ attestation forms, in some cases after observing the employee do a prescribed number of assessments. The document states that it was found on more than one occasion that Harvey falsified observations in order for staff to be certified to perform assessments; attested to observations that never took place; and attested to observations on dates/time form which it was later confirmed no assessments were done.
