Where To Report Waste Fraud, Abuse, Or Retaliation

The Legislature should consider eliminating the Board of Licensed Dietitians because it substantially duplicates the national commission on dietetic registration, and title protection can be provided statutorily.

Report Details

Report Description: 
The objective of this review was to determine if licensure of dietitians is necessary to protect the public. This review also assessed the Board’s compliance with Chapter 30 requirements and other applicable sections of West Virginia Code. The Legislative Auditor finds that the Board of Licensed Dietitians should be terminated for several reasons, including West Virginia licensure fully duplicates the national credential; adequate public protection exists without a regulatory board; and complaints are infrequent.
