Licensing board prohibits psychiatrist from practicing by himself

During their courses of normal duty, Pennsylvania psychiatrists often treat patients who, for one reason or other, benefit from taking prescription drugs. It is no secret that controlled substances are often highly addictive, which is why doctor supervision is so important to patient safety. A licensing board in another state says a psychiatrist failed in his obligation to carefully oversee patients for whom he had prescribed such drugs.

Conduct allegations can lead to medical licensing problems

When a Pennsylvania doctor's conduct is called into question, it can create complications for patients regarding their current health care regimens. If a medical licensing board suspends a physician's license, he or she is still obligated to help primary care patients obtain treatment elsewhere. A doctor in another state is currently going through a similar situation following reprimand and license suspension due to allegations of misconduct.

Facing a Pennsylvania medical licensing problem re medication?

Nurses in Pennsylvania and beyond go to school for a long time to obtain their licenses to practice nursing. While they may have a certain amount of field experience during training, real life situations often involve unexpected issues that can prove quite challenging to deal with. One issue that nurses face on a daily basis that can be complicated at times is administering medication to their patients. If a patient later claims that a nurse was negligent, it could lead to medical licensing problems for him or her.  

Doctor continues his medical license defense

If a medical licensing board suspends a Pennsylvania doctor's license, he or she may, at some point, have the opportunity to request a renewal, which, if granted, would enable to him or her to return to practicing medicine in this state. Such situations can be quite complex, however, and most physicians understand that they will face great challenges, especially if acting on their own behalf for medical license defense. There is really no need to do so, however, since strong legal support is available.  

Understanding various licensing board rulings

There are numerous situations that can cause a Pennsylvania doctor to face administrative licensing proceedings. For instance, it may occur if a patient accuses a physician of wrongdoing or if a doctor fails to adhere to protocol that governs his or her behavior in the workplace. A licensing board has the authority in appropriate circumstances to place a doctor on probation, suspend or even revoke his or her medical license.

Licensing board suspends doctor until 2020

If a Pennsylvania doctor is placed on suspension, he or she is then prohibited from practicing medicine in the state unless and until such time that the suspension is officially lifted. A licensing board in another state has suspended a particular doctor there until 2020, following the death of one of his patients. The decedent's family is blaming the doctor for negligence, saying their loved one might still be alive if the doctor had not over-prescribed narcotics.

Licensing board temporarily suspends Pennsylvania doctor

A man who has been a practicing doctor in Pennsylvania for nearly 30 years is facing serious legal and administrative problems at this time. Any other physician in this state who is worried about licensing board sanctions may want follow this case. For the time being, the doctor in question has been suspended and asked to surrender his medical credentials.

Protect your rights and career in a licensing board hearing

As a licensed professional in Pennsylvania, there are numerous personal or criminal issues that may have an immediate or long-term impact on your career. If something happens that results in you being called to a licensing board hearing, you may feel stressed and worried about your future. While it's possible to go it alone when appearing before the board, it is not necessary and, in fact, may not be the best choice possible.

Licensing board investigating situation involving psychologist

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.  

Plastic surgeon suspended by medical licensing board

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.
