Facing Legal Issues
As a healthcare practitioner, when you are facing disciplinary actions or have had your license suspended or been put on probation, this could also cause a number of other repercussions, namely the removal from network providers. This most often happens when a physician has been disciplined due to standard of care violations or chemical dependency.
Fortunately for those who have faced disciplinary action, there are options available. One can not only appeal to have decisions, such as being removed from a network provider, appealed, but one can also appeal to the National Practitioner Data Bank to have incorrect, sealed, or expunged information removed when it pertains to a professional’s disciplinary or criminal past. Taking such actions, however, is often difficult, especially when you choose to do so alone. Thus, many professionals find themselves considering enlisting the support of a legal professional familiar with this area of law.
Employment Agreements and Your Rights
For many healthcare and corporate professionals, having a well-planned Professional Association is essential to their success. However, making an efficient and effective partnership, and keeping it successful, is contingent on a number of factors. As such, may medical professionals seeking to form or update their Professional Association seek legal help with the following:
- Start Up Procedures
- Purchase and Sale agreements
- Shareholder Agreements
- Shareholder and Partner Disputes
- Property and Medical Equipment Leases and Contracts
- Employee/Employer Contracts
Another important aspect of having a successful Professional Association and to prevent avoidable issues from arising is to define and protect the rights of employees and employers through clear and thorough employment agreements. It is common for litigation to begin over issues that could have been resolved with a properly written contract. Some of the issues handled by the Houston health and corporate law attorneys include:
- Contract Review
- Contract Drafting
- Employment & Employee Counsel and Advice
- Contract Negotiation
- Non-Compete Agreements
However, addressing these issues in agreements and contracts will not always prevent a professional from being asked to appear before a review board. In this case, it is usually best for a person to seek the support of a qualified legal professional.
