      Nature of Complaint

      The physician admitted being under the influence of alcohol while providing professional services at the Clinic where she was employed on July 12, 2010. She was removed from the clinic and suspended from her employment; she was subsequently terminated on July 16, 2010. On July 21, 2010 the physician reported for admission to an inpatient unit for alcohol detoxification. Her physician at the facility told her the adequate level of her treatment required residential treatment. The physician declined consideration because of financial concerns. She did agree to a partial hospitalization program; however, she failed to appear for the appointments. The facility physician reported her to the Board and stated “I do have concerns that Dr. Peterson has a severe alcohol dependence that puts her at high risk of harming patients and public safety.”

      The physician is also being disciplined in the State of North Dakota for relapses with alcohol use and being impaired while on duty.
