On March 9, 2020, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Board of Respiratory Care temporarily suspended, without notice, the Texas respiratory care practitioner permit of Karl B. Boncales, RCP (Lic. No. 00073748), after determining his continuation in the practice of respiratory care poses a continuing threat to public welfare. The suspension was effective immediately.
The Board panel found that Mr. Boncales was arrested multiple times in Hidalgo County for drug related offenses, including possession of controlled substances and driving while intoxicated.
A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days’ notice to Mr. Boncales, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Mr. Boncales.
The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action.
