Bothell social worker's license suspended for inappropriate conduct with juveniles

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

State health officials suspended the license of Bothell social worker and chemical dependency treatment provider Brian Keith Hall (LW.60492025, CP.00005232) pending further legal action.

Charges state Hall asked a juvenile client to lay his head on a pillow in Hall’s lap while Hall touched the client’s torso and head. Hall allegedly touched the client’s torso with his hand in a rubbing motion, at times below the client’s clothing, and asked the client sexual questions unrelated to legitimate health care purposes. Hall is also charged with inappropriate conduct related to two other juvenile clients.

Hall cannot practice as a social worker or a chemical dependency treatment provider in Washington until the charges are resolved. He has 20 days to respond to the charges and request a hearing.

The legal documents on this case can be seen online by clicking the link on Provider Credential Search on the Department of Health website; copies can be requested by calling 360-236-4700. Anyone who believes a health care provider acted unprofessionally is encouraged to call this number and report their complaint.

The agency establishes, monitors, and enforces qualifications for licensing, consistent standards of practice, continuing competency mechanisms, and discipline. Rules, policies, and procedures promote the delivery of quality health care to people in Washington.
