Nursing Malpractice Investigations
Nurses who have been accused of malpractice stand to lose a lot if the allegations against them are shown to be true. Anyone who receives a nursing license commits to uphold a high standard of care and to avoid putting patients at unreasonable risk of suffering harm. Unfortunately, sometimes nurses take the fall for a malpractice accident that was not entirely their fault and may even have their nursing licenses unfairly suspended or revoked as a result, damaging their professional reputations and their livelihoods.
Negligence and Your License
Being accused of medical negligence can have a drastic impact on your career as a healthcare professional. Not only could your professional reputation be tarnished, but you could have your license suspended or revoked.
If you are facing allegations of malpractice, you need an experienced Texas medical license defense lawyer to defend your case. Contact the Leichter Law Firm at 512-495-9995 to get started with your defense.
Licensing Investigations for Negligence
A case for medical negligence may be initiated in a variety of ways. A patient, co-worker, or supervisor may be among those who file a complaint against a healthcare professional. Once this complaint is filed with the licensing board, the board may initiate an investigation to determine what disciplinary action should be taken. However, being accused of medical malpractice does not mean that you are guilty of medical malpractice. You have the right to a fair investigation, during which you may defend your case.
Defending Against Malpractice Accusations
A nurse may be accused of malpractice for any number of reasons. A patient with serious health complications may believe that negligence led to his or her illness or injury, even if that is not the case. Similarly, a procedure that goes awry may be blamed on a nurse who had only limited involvement during the surgery or treatment.
If you are facing a board investigation for nursing malpractice, our Texas nursing license defense attorneys understand that you may have been wrongly accused. We are prepared to scrutinize all of the evidence against you and to ensure that you are not being unfairly blamed for negligence that you did not commit. Even if you are partially responsible, it may be possible to argue that much of the harm caused was out of your control and that the penalties against you should be reduced.
