OATH Administrative Law Judge Joycelyn McGeachy-Kuls found that MH failed to prove that the Employee was currently unfit to perform the duties of a school nurse and recommended that the proceeding be dismissed.
Employee submitted reports from her psychiatrist and her therapist demonstrating that she had been under their care for more than a year, attended regular appointments with each of them, that she was aware of her mental health condition, and she was diligent about taking her medication.
Based on the doctor’s reports, Judge McGeachy-Kuls found that it was clear that Employee was actively engaged in her treatment with each of them. Further Employee’s psychiatrist and therapist both expressed “unequivocally” that she was fit to resume her duties as a school nurse and that she is not a danger to herself or to the students.
