When someone files a complaint claiming you did something unethical or something wrong, you need to take such accusations seriously. At Bertolino LLP, we are well aware of what’s at stake when someone files a complaint against a pharmacist. That’s why we work so hard for pharmacists fighting to protect their reputation and their licenses to practice their profession. You can count on us – Bertolino LLP – medical board defense lawyer TX.
The Texas State Board of Pharmacy is given the task of regulating the practice of pharmacy, the operation of pharmacies, and the distribution of prescription drugs in our state. This board also has the right to discipline pharmacists in cases of unprofessional conduct, fraud, criminal behavior, or a violation of any drug or health statute. The Texas State Board of Pharmacy cannot hear complaints concerning rude behavior, customer service, or billing disputes, however. Ultimately, the pharmacy boards are responsible for protecting the best interest of the public in Texas.
What kind of action can a Texas licensing board take against me?
If a Texas licensing board or agency launches a formal investigation into a complaint or allegations against you, you may be subject to disciplinary action, such as:
- Suspension of you license
- A written reprimand
- Outright revocation of the license
Don’t let this happen to you. Our professional license defense lawyers at Bertolino LLP can help build you a strong case and protect your license, reputation and career.
Serving pharmacists in Austin and all of Texas
If an investigation into the complaint shows merit, an informal settlement conference may be requested. With both the pharmacist and a board panel participating in the process, a course of action known as an Agreed Board Order (ABO) is often recommended. The specific consequence must be approved by the entire Board as well as the licensee. If the proposal is rejected by either party, the case will go to a public hearing in front of an administrative law judge. This judge (also known as an ALJ) will prepare a Proposal for Decision (PFD), which is then presented to the Board for a final decision and determination.
