Since the enactment of Senate Bill 202 in 2015, the Texas Medical Board (TMB) serves as the regulatory body responsible for the licensing and regulation of Medical Radiologic Technologists. The TMB regulates General Medical Radiologic Technologists, Limited Medical Radiologic Technologists, and Non-Certified Radiological Technicians. Complaints against radiological technicians can be filed with the TMB by patients, patients’ family members, health care professionals, or other sources.
Building a career in radiology is difficult, and it may take only one complaint to derail yours. The radiologist license defense attorneys at BERTOLINO LLP know how to handle these complex cases and help radiological technicians protect their livelihood, career, and reputation.
If you are the target of a complaint of unlawful or improper conduct, that complaint will be investigated by the TMB. Some allegations that could put a radiologist’s license in jeopardy include:
- Violating a patient’s confidentiality
- Failing to meet acceptable standards of care
- Being convicted of a criminal charge
- Not following appropriate radiation safety protocols
If you receive a notice that the Board is investigating a complaint against you, it is imperative that you contact an experienced license defense attorney immediately. The TMB investigates every complaint it receives. Understand that the board is not on your side. Their function is to protect the public, not to help you defend your license.
Even if you feel the allegations are baseless, hiring an attorney to defend you is the option that will give you the best chance of a favorable outcome in your case. Every stage of the investigation process is an opportunity for you to defend your radiological license. Every communication with the TMB matters, starting with your initial responses to the allegations. In fact, well-crafted first responses (“Rebuttal Packet”) have the power to get the allegations dismissed from the start. An experienced license defense attorney can help you craft a response to the allegations that fully conveys your side of the events without risking an admission of guilt.
Our attorneys know how to represent Radiological Technologists at every stage of the complaint process, from the initial investigation and any settlement negotiations through subsequent hearings that may follow. We will launch our own investigation, work with you to develop a legal strategy, and mount a strong defense for your license and your livelihood.
Our law firm helps professionals, like you, keep their licenses when those licenses are under attack by a state agency or board.
