4729-9-26 Criminal records check for pain management clinics.

Pursuant to division (B) of section 4729.552 of the Revised Code, a new terminal distributor of dangerous drug license with a pain management clinic classification will not be issued until the physician owner(s), or if incorporated the physician officers, of the pain management clinic submit fingerprints to the Ohio bureau of criminal identification and investigation (BCI&I) for a criminal records check. Additionally, a criminal records check is required every time there is a change in ownership for each new owner(s) or officer(s). The criminal records check shall consist of both a BCI&I criminal records check and a federal bureau of investigations (FBI) records check. The results of the criminal records check must be sent directly to the Ohio state board of pharmacy from BCI&I. To be considered valid, the criminal records check must have been performed within the past twelve months. After the board receives the results of all of the required criminal records checks the license process will proceed. The physician owner(s) or physician officers must submit electronic fingerprint impressions pursuant to rule 4729-5-12 of the Administrative Code. Physician owner(s) or physician officers are required to have all employees submit to a BCI&I and FBI criminal records check to ensure that no person has been previously convicted of, or pleaded guilty to a theft offense that would constitute a felony as described in division (K)(3) of section 2913.01 of the Revised Code or a felony drug abuse offense as defined in section 2925.01 of the Revised Code. Employees must submit electronic fingerprint impressions to the physician owner(s) or physician officers pursuant to rule 4729-4-04 of the Administrative Code.
