Malpractice suits, litigation, and the increasing number of specialties developing in the medical and healthcare arenas have created stricter licensing guidelines and disciplinary procedures for licensees. Nurses, Pharmacists, Dentists, Veterinarians, Psychologists, Physician Assistants, Licensed Professional Counselors, Surgical Assistants and Technicians, and a variety of other licensed healthcare professionals are increasingly subject to misconduct investigations and disciplinary proceedings by their licensing boards and agencies. Moreover, the initial application process has grown more rigorous in an effort to weed out potential problems and thwart perceived potential harms in the future.
Over the last decade it has become increasingly more difficult to get through initial character and fitness determinations and be deemed eligible for licensure by state licensing boards. Furthermore, an increase in disciplinary investigations and sanctions has caused a marked rise in the number of forced surrenders and revocations in an effort to apply stricter standards upon reapplication, thereby weeding out potential threats. If you are involved in this vicious cycle, you should consider obtaining competent legal counsel to help you work back towards good standing with your licensing board.
Obtaining a nursing license, dental license, veterinary medicine license, or other health care professional license with a disciplinary history or criminal conviction is an uphill battle for any professional and should not be fought without effective legal representation. Whether you are facing initial licensing concerns or are the subject of a disciplinary action or misconduct investigation, the Law Office of Louis Leichter can advocate for you in a forceful yet diplomatic manner. Do not let the licensing agency get ahead of you in their efforts to revoke your license or impose strict disciplinary sanctions. Call us so we can begin to properly assert your rights and interests immediately.
