aroundtheworldCHARLESTON, WV.  A new report says West Virginia needs to regulate chiropractors, but questions the performance of the agency assigned that task.
 
Lawmakers were told Tuesday that the Board of Chiropractic has failed to notify licensees about complaints pending against them. The people who file complaints have been left in the dark as well.
 
The report to House-Senate interim committees also said the board failed to discipline one chiropractor found to have violated professional standards.
 
The legislative auditors raise specific concerns about the board's handling of two recent cases. In one, it renewed the license of a chiropractor indicted on federal health care fraud charges.
 
The other involved a chiropractor who obtained 31 pain pill prescriptions from four different providers. The board contacted federal authorities, but took no internal actions.
