In Department of Health, Board of Psychology v. Netta Shaked, Case No. 11-5995PL, Florida's Division of Administrative Hearings ruled that a marital therapist did not fail to meet the minimum standards of performance by terminating her professional relationship with clients via e-mail. The judgement states that the petitioner's expert witness failed to articulate "the minimum standard of performance against which Respondent's actions should be measured. Instead, Petitioner has attempted to hold Respondent to ... what "best practice" requires of a psychologist a termination context.... Indeed it is well settled that a healthcare provider does not depart from the standard of care ... simply because the "best practice" was not followed. The same case included a successful application by the Respondent to allow an Expert Witness to testify via webcast.
