Experienced Attorneys Defending Respiratory Care Licensees
Respiratory issues can be some of the most frightening of all medical problems, as patients who have trouble breathing may feel helpless and vulnerable. The work you do as a respiratory care practitioner helps to heal these conditions and the anxiety they cause. You have worked hard to earn your license, but a single complaint can destroy your livelihood, and all the hard work invested to build it.
In Texas, licensed Respiratory Care Practitioners are regulated by the Texas Medical Board (TMB). Any complaint against you could be investigated by the TMB, and if the complaint is found to have merit, you could face disciplinary action as severe as license revocation. With so much hanging in the balance, it is imperative to contact an experienced respiratory care license defense attorney. The attorneys at Bertolino LLP have the experience and skill you will need to defend your license.
We can represent you before the Texas Medical Board
A broad range of accusations could put your license in jeopardy. Some of the complaints that could result in disciplinary action by the Board are:
- Use of alcohol or drugs while on the job.
- Failure to meet accepted standards of care for patients.
- Breach of confidentiality.
- Inappropriate professional boundaries and relationships with patients.
- Conviction of a criminal offense, especially if it is related to your job duties.
- Fraud, including insurance or Medicaid fraud.
If you have received a notice that the Board is investigating a complaint against you, do not procrastinate; contact the experienced attorneys at Bertolino LLP today.
