The state Department of Education Office of the Professions website said Friday that Schreiner’s license to be a certified social worker has been summarily suspended.
Bassett had immediately placed Schreiner on administrative leave in September 2012 pending the outcome of the investigation, Karen Huxtable, Bassett spokeswoman said Friday.
The state Department of Education suspended Schreiner’s license as a result of the grand jury findings, Huxtable said, and Bassett terminated his employment January 2013 immediately upon receiving notice from the state.
Bassett’s extensive background checks on all employees include a search of international and federal databases and a specific search of state and federal health care databases for any action against a provider’s clinical license, Huxtable said.
Bassett also conducts a county level search for each residential address of the employee, she said, and source verification from the state Office of the Professions to confirm that a provider’s license is current and without action taken against it.
“The background check on Mr. Schreiner came back fine and provided no ‘red flags’ to indicate he shouldn’t be hired,” Huxtable said in an email.
