DHS/MDH licenses may be denied for a host of reasons, including:
Arrests and dismissed criminal charges
Termination of parental rights
Similarly, the health license boards are permitted to take disciplinary action, up to and including suspension or revocation of a professional license, for dozens of reasons such as:
Conviction of a crime
Unethical or improper conduct
Conduct likely to harm the public
Becoming addicted to drugs
Disqualification timeframes can range anywhere from seven years to permanent disqualification, depending on the type of offense, and your professional license may be in jeopardy even if you are not convicted of a crime. The standard that DHS, MDH, and the licensing boards may use to disqualify a license-holder is much lower than the criminal burden of proof, and in disqualification cases, the “burden” is on the license-holder to show they did not act in a way that disqualifies them.
