New Mexico revokes social worker's license for house sitting
January 23, 2014
On February 27, 2013, the New Mexico Board of Social Work revoked the license of Daniel T. O’Brien for five years. The Board had served O’Brien a notice of Contemplated Action which he neglected to respond to in the allotted time. The Board had charged him with engaging in a dual relationship with a patient by house-sitting for the patient or the patient’s guardian; he allowed personal issues to interfere with his treatment of the patient and failed to seek consultation or take remedial action to handle the personal problems which were affecting those with whom he had a professional responsibility.
