Dr Jason George Kovan-Boss

02 April 2020

The Health Ombudsman took immediate registration action by imposing conditions on the registration of Dr Jason George Kovan-Boss, effective 2 April 2020.

The Health Ombudsman then varied the conditions, effective 1 December 2022.

Details of Dr Jason George Kovan-Boss’ registration, including the full list of imposed conditions, can be viewed on the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency website.

Conditions imposed on Dr Jason George Kovan-Boss’ registration include the following requirements:

  • The practitioner must not have contact with any male patients without the presence of a practice monitor approved by the Health Ombudsman who is continually physically present and directly observes (sees and hears) all contact between the practitioner and the patient.
  • The practitioner must only practise as a registered health practitioner in employment and at practice locations approved by the Health Ombudsman.
  • Unless otherwise directed by the Health Ombudsman, the practitioner must comply with the Practice monitor protocol for registered health practitioners (practice monitor protocol) in force at the date these conditions are imposed and then as amended from time to time as published on the website of the Office of the Health Ombudsman (https://www.oho.qld.gov.au/investigations/monitoring-and-compliance).
  • The practitioner must ensure that male patients are told of the requirement for a practice monitor at the time of booking an appointment or, in the case of an unbooked appointment, at the time of presenting at the practice seeking an appointment with the practitioner. Practitioners must not provide this information to patients personally.

In accordance with section 62(2) of the Health Ombudsman Act 2013 (the Act), the Health Ombudsman's decision will continue to have effect until the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal sets the decision aside or the Health Ombudsman removes the conditions imposed on Dr Jason George Kovan-Boss' registration under section 65 of the Act.
