A physician’s primary responsibility is to ensure that the health and safety of his or her patients is properly supported and never harmed by their care. If a physician is accused of providing substandard care, he or she could be facing the loss of a medical license.

Common Quality-of-Care Allegations
Various accusations can be brought against a physician and his or her practice, alleging poor quality-of-care, but what does quality-of-care really mean? Allegations of poor quality-of-care might include things like:
- Improperly billing Medicare or Medicaid
- Understaffing a healthcare facility
- Under-training medical staff
- Violating health regulations in a facility
- Recklessly endangering patients
These are only a few examples of accusations of poor quality-of-care that can be brought against a physician. However, if a physician does not have appropriate and qualified legal representation, any of these accusations could lead to the loss of one’s medical license.
