The receipt shall bear the following statement in type no smaller than the largest used in the body copy portion of the receipt: "The purchaser has been advised that any examination or representation made by a licensed hearing aid dispenser in connection with the fitting or selection and selling of this hearing aid is not an examination, diagnosis, or prescription by a person licensed to practice medicine in this state and therefore, must not be regarded as medical opinion or advice." 3. Whenever any of the following conditions are found to exist either from observations by the licensed hearing aid dispenser or person holding a temporary permit or on the basis of information furnished by a prospective hearing aid user, the hearing aid dispenser or person holding a temporary permit shall, prior to fitting and selling a hearing aid to any individual, suggest to that individual in writing that the individual's best interests would be served if the individual would consult a licensed physician specializing in diseases of the ear, or if no such licensed physician is available in the community, then a duly licensed physician: a.

A copy of the written recommendation shall be retained by the licensed hearing aid dispenser for the period of seven years. A person receiving the written recommendation who elects to purchase a hearing aid shall sign a receipt for the same, and the receipt shall be kept with the other papers retained by the licensed hearing aid dispenser for the period of seven years. Nothing in this section required to be performed by a licensed hearing aid dispenser shall mean that the hearing aid dispenser is engaged in the diagnosis of illness or the practice of medicine or any other activity prohibited by this chapter. 5. No hearing aid shall be sold by any individual licensed under this chapter to a person twelve years of age or younger, unless within the preceding six months a recommendation for a hearing aid has been made by a physician specializing in otolaryngology. A replacement of an identical hearing aid within one year shall be an exception to this requirement. 6. A licensed hearing aid dispenser shall, upon the consummation of a sale of a hearing aid, keep and maintain records in the dispenser's office or place of business at all times and each such record shall be kept and maintained for a seven-year period.

154A.23 COMPLAINTS. Any person wishing to make a complaint against a licensee or holder of a temporary permit shall file a written statement with the board within twelve months from the date of the action upon which the complaint is based. If the board determines that the complaint alleges facts which, if proven, would be cause for the suspension or revocation of the license of the licensee or the permit of the holder of a temporary permit, it shall make an order fixing a time and place for a hearing and requiring the licensee or holder of a temporary permit complained against to appear and defend. The order shall contain a copy of the complaint, and the order and copy of the complaint shall be served upon the licensee or holder of a temporary permit at least twenty days before the date set for hearing, either personally or as provided in section 154A.21. Continuance or adjournment of a hearing date may be made for good cause. At the hearing the licensee or holder of a temporary permit may be represented by counsel. The licensee or holder of a temporary permit and the board may take depositions in advance of hearing and after service of the complaint, and either may compel the attendance of witnesses by subpoenas issued by the board. The board shall issue such subpoenas at the request of a licensee or holder of a temporary permit. Either party taking depositions shall give at least five days' written notice to the other party of the time and place of such depositions, and the other party may attend, with counsel, if desired, and cross-examine. If the board determines from the evidence and proofs submitted that the licensee or holder of a temporary permit is guilty of violating any of the provisions of this chapter, or any of the regulations promulgated by the board pursuant to this chapter, the department shall, within thirty days after the hearing, issue an order refusing to issue or renew, or revoking or suspending, as the case may be, the hearing aid dispenser's license or temporary permit. The order shall include the findings of fact and the conclusions of law made by the board and counsel. A copy of the order shall be sent to the licensee or holder of a temporary permit by registered mail. The records of the department shall reflect the action taken by the board on the charges, and the department shall preserve a record of the proceedings in a manner similar to that used by courts of record in this state. The final order of the board in the proceedings may be appealed to the district court of the county where the licensee or holder of a temporary permit resides, or in which the licensed hearing aid dispenser's principal place of business is located. The department shall send a copy of the complaint and a copy of the board's final order to the attorney general for purposes of information in the event the licensee or holder of a temporary permit pursues a court appeal and for consideration as to whether the violations are flagrant enough to justify prosecution. The attorney general and all county attorneys shall assist the department in the enforcement of the provisions of this chapter.

Representing that the service or advice of a person licensed to practice medicine, or one who is certificated as a clinical audiologist by the board of speech pathology and audiology or its equivalent, will be used or made available in the fitting or selection, adjustment, maintenance, or repair of hearing aids when that is not true, or using the words "doctor", "clinic", "clinical audiologist", "state approved", or similar words, abbreviations, or symbols which tend to connote the medical or other professions, except where the title "certified hearing aid audiologist" has been granted by the national hearing aid society, or that the hearing aid dispenser has been recommended by this state or the board when such is not accurate. f. Habitual intemperance. g. Permitting another person to use the license or temporary permit. h. Advertising a manufacturer's product or using a manufacturer's name or trademark to imply a relationship with the manufacturer that does not exist. i.

Representing, directly or by implication, that a hearing aid utilizing bone conduction has certain specified features, such as the absence of anything in the ear or leading to the ear, or the like, without disclosing clearly and conspicuously that the instrument operates on the bone conduction principle, and that in many cases of hearing loss, this type of instrument may not be suitable. p. Stating or implying that the use of a hearing aid will restore normal hearing or preserve hearing or prevent or retard progressions of hearing impairment or any other false or misleading claim regarding the use or benefit of a hearing aid. q. Representing or implying that a hearing aid is or will be "custom-made", "made to order", "prescription made", or in any other sense especially fabricated for an individual person when such is not the case. r. Violating any of the provisions of section 714.16. s. Failure to place in an advertisement, if an advertisement does not include the words "hearing aid" in the title of the business which is advertising, the qualifying words in the same size type, "for the purpose of fitting, selection, adaption, and sale of hearing aids". However, the qualifying words are not required if the advertisement includes the words, "hearing test", "hearing evaluation", "free hearing test", "free hearing evaluation", "hearing measurement", or "free hearing measurement", and the title of the business which is advertising appears in the advertisement and includes the words "hearing aid". t.
