Five local health professionals have been disciplined by state regulators, with two facing actual suspensions of their license to practice.

The Board of Regents announced the disciplinary actions as part of 25 professional discipline cases and one restoration for individuals around the state.

According to the state, the penalties indicated for each case relate solely to the misconduct charged:

• Karen Mac David, a licensed mental health counselor in Bowmansville, agreed to a two year stayed suspension, two years of probation and a $500 fine.

• Christina Sieracki, a registered professional nurse in Williamsville , agreed to indefinite actual suspension of her license until she is deemed fit to practice and will pay a $500 fine. Upon termination of the suspension, she will serve two years of probation when she returns to practice.

• Krysta Logsdon, a registered professional nurse in Holley, agreed to indefinite actual suspension of her license until she is deemed fit to practice and will pay a $500 fine. Upon termination of the suspension, she will serve two years of probation when she returns to practice.
