A Medical License Defense Lawyer Can Help
As a healthcare professional, you provide vital care to patients with a broad spectrum of medical conditions. Your job requires that you follow strict standards set by state boards and the Medical Practice Act. Failure to meet these standards can result in disciplinary actions and criminal charges that can lead to suspension or revocation of your medical license.
When a The Law Office of Tracey R. Perlman is filed against you, you may receive an initial notice from the board requesting more information about your conduct. This information can be used against you in a formal hearing or in court if your case goes to trial.
Doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals are subject to criminal and disciplinary investigations by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) or the OPMC (Office of Professional Medical Conduct). These allegations can be blatantly obvious (stealing medications or writing prescriptions for personal use or profit), or they can be more subtle, such as failing to dispose of narcotics in the proper way.
The Impact of Criminal Charges on Medical License Defense Cases
Having your license disciplined can have a serious impact on your career and future employment opportunities. It can also affect your ability to obtain insurance coverage and maintain privileges at certain hospitals.
Litigating Your Case against the FDOH or Board
After your complaint has been investigated, you will be given a chance to dispute the evidence gathered against you. This is referred to as a Formal Hearing, and it is conducted before the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH). The resulting Determination and Order will determine your disciplinary action, which could include revocation or suspension of your medical license.
