Attorneys with Significant Experience Defending Against Board ComplaintsIt’s the nightmare of every licensed professional: Receiving a professional complaint from your board. You may take the complaint personally and feel that your career is ending, or you may not take the complaint seriously enough and jeopardize your career.
Every licensed professional is required to perform at a certain standard level of care and professionalism with every patient and client. Usually, the standard of care that is received is never questioned. From time to time, however, a patient or client might have had a bad outcome and question the level of care or professionalism they received. When that happens, the patient or client may decide to file a complaint with your board. Sometimes, the board will initiate the complaint. Sometimes, licensees self-report or are required to self-report.
There are several important things to keep in mind, when responding to a board complaint, including:
- You need to be aware of the rules and procedures that govern your board, your license and your practice.
- You need to keep the emotions out of your response.
- You must be careful not to incriminate yourself — your board is not your advocate.
- You must backup your response with facts — your board will take the word of your patient / client over your word.
Because your license could be on the line, you owe it to yourself, your license and your practice to leverage experienced attorneys to help protect your livelihood. Business Law Southwest, LLC knows the rules, knows how to properly respond, and knows how to fight for your rights.
