Possible Grounds for Discipline
Every licensing board has a list of prohibited actions that, if committed, qualify a professional for a board inquiry and possible discipline. If you are being investigated for a licensing violation, the board will look for any evidence that you have committed a prohibited action or other offense that falls under the grounds for discipline. Some of the possible actions that can lead to a disciplinary case or license revocation include:
- Committing a Texas health law violation
- License registration or renewal fraud
- Medical practice misconduct, fraud, or negligence
- Practicing while a license is pending or suspended
- Practicing while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Alcohol or drug dependency
- Committing a criminal offense
- Qualifying as mentally unstable or insane
If you are a licensed professional and are suspected of committing or meeting any of the above actions or conditions, you are likely facing a formal inquiry by your licensing board. While an investigation into your practice can be stressful and harmful to your professional reputation, it doesn’t have to be. Our Texas license defense attorneys have the knowledge and experience to defend your case involving administrative law, health law, or criminal charges.
