VI. Patient Care by Other Healthcare Professionals

C6.1 — Concern about Care by Other Healthcare Professionals

The ABC Credential Holder shall exercise appropriate respect for other healthcare professionals. Concerns regarding patient care provided by other such professionals should be addressed directly to those professionals rather than to the patient. In the event that such concerns rise to the level of possible criminal violation, incompetence or malpractice, then the ABC Credential Holder must immediately notify the appropriate law enforcement, credentialing or licensure authority and if necessary, the patient or legal guardian.
