Texas Medical Board Disciplinary Penalties
Professional boards assign severe penalties for any violations committed by licensed professionals. Each profession has its own board that is typically run at the state level, and anyone who intends to practice that profession in state must be licensed by the board. When an individual commits a license violation, the board may decide to take disciplinary action. Without good legal counsel and defense, you could be heavily penalized for even a minor violation of your professional license.

Each licensing board has its own set of standards that a professional must meet to retain his or her license. In addition, the board sets a list of prohibited actions that, if committed, may lead to disciplinary action. Some of the licensing penalties that a professional may face include:
- Monetary Fines / Administrative Penalty
- Supervision or Chart Monitor
- Rehabilitation Orders (including drug screening)
- Continuing Education
- Comprehensive Examinations
- Scope of Practice Restrictions
- DEA and Controlled Substances limitations
- Prescriptive Authority Restrictions
- License Suspension
- License Revocation
In addition to these penalties instituted by the board, a professional could find himself or herself facing a civil lawsuit for any damages caused by the license violation.
