Psychologist Sylvester Briggs reprimanded for allowing inmates access to patient records
May 21, 2013
On January 18, 2013, the Ohio Board of Psychology reprimanded Sylvester Briggs, Ph.D.
The Board document states that in November 2011, Briggs was placed administrative leave from his position at the Chillicothe Correctional Institute (CCI) pending an investigation into his conduct as psychologist supervisor.
The document states that the leave was related to, among other things, Briggs authorizing inmates to have access to and/or possess confidential mental health information, in violation of policy.
This is reported to have occurred when Briggs utilized three CCI inmates to help relocate his offices.
