Pennsylvania psychologists, like all others throughout the nation, must adhere to certain regulations and protocol that set the accepted standards of practice for their profession. If a licensing board has reason to question the behavior of a licensed psychologist, it may issue a license suspension while an investigation takes place. A psychologist in another state is currently facing such circumstances.
Few Pennsylvania nurses would deny the fact that their jobs come with a significant amount of stress. The pressures of the job can quickly become overwhelming, and without proper coping mechanisms, nurses could turn to pharmaceuticals or alcohol for an escape.
A woman who has come to be known as the "dancing doctor" has apparently surrendered her license indefinitely. Pennsylvania plastic surgeons may want to follow the case involving several patients coming forward to say they suffered serious injuries under her care. The plastic surgeon gained the nickname "dancing doctor" after videos of her dancing during surgeries appeared on YouTube. Due to those films and allegations of malpractice from several people, a medical licensing board stripped her of her professional title.
Pennsylvania doctors may want to keep tabs on a recent situation in another state involving a doctor who has been penalized for her demeanor toward a patient. A medical licensing board has suspended the doctor's license. This administrative penalty was issued in connection to an exchange that occurred between the physician and a patient, who happens to be a college basketball player.
