Pennsylvania woman's death prompted licensing board to act

There is one less practicing physician in Johnstown at this time. A Pennsylvania licensing board has suspended a doctor's license. The situation involves a woman who had been treated at the physician's office and later died. The case is still under investigation.

Have you been called before a Pennsylvania licensing board?

The State Board of Nursing and State Board of Medicine are two licensing entities in Pennsylvania. If a licensed nurse or physician has his or her actions called into question, it may be necessary for him or her to appear at a hearing. In such cases, the person who stands accused is guaranteed an opportunity to present a defense.

Medical licensing problems surface after patient files complaint

Many Pennsylvania physicians treat female patients. Depending on the situation, there may be times when no one is in an examining room except a patient and physician. In the case of a doctor in another state, this type of situation led to medical licensing problems when a female patient filed a claim with the state's attorney general, saying that the doctor acted inappropriately.

Physician in another state files lawsuit against licensing board

A Pennsylvania doctor might undergo license suspension at some point in his or her career. When a licensing board issues such an order, the physician in question is guaranteed an opportunity to request a hearing and present a defense. A doctor in another state is suing the board who suspended his license. He claim that officials violated his rights by doing so.

Physician license defense: Conflicting testimonies

Any Pennsylvania physician accused of unprofessional conduct on the job is guaranteed an opportunity to deny the allegations. Successful physician license defense often helps resolve such issues. Some situations are more complex than others, as made evident by a case in another state where conflicting testimonies have been given to the court.

Suspected drug use prompts medical licensing problems for nurses

When Pennsylvania nurses are accused of unprofessional behavior, it can place their careers at risk. Eight nurses in another state are currently facing medical licensing problems related to suspected substance abuse problems on the job. In situations like this, it is always a good idea to speak with an experienced medical licensing attorney to determine what type of defense strategy may be available to help mitigate circumstances.

Allergy doctor facing medical licensing problems re allegations

Many Pennsylvania residents suffer from seasonal allergies or other conditions related to food, topical products or chemicals. One of the most logical things to do if symptoms arise is to seek medical examination from a licensed physician who specializes as an allergist. An allergy doctor in another state is currently dealing with a medical licensing problem; his license has been suspended because of allegations made by some of his patients.

Effects of professional impropriety and physician license defense

If someone accuses a Pennsylvania doctor of misconduct, he or she may immediately suffer a serious job security risk. Not every accusation of wrongdoing is accurate or true, however. It is unfortunate that false accusations can have long-term, far-reaching negative effects on a physician's career. Physician license defense is a key factor to overcoming legal problems that arise in the medical workplace, which threaten suspension or revocation of a license to practice medicine.

License board suspends doctor and removes 20 other employees

There is stringent protocol in place in most Pennsylvania hospitals that help doctors and nurses keep patients in need of medication as safe as possible. Long ago, doctors wrote medication orders on pads of paper, and nurses carried out those orders. Nowadays, everything is computerized although digital medication orders are typically read by multiple staff members before a nurse finally dispenses and administers the medical in question. A license board in another state has stepped in and suspended a physician on suspicion that he was either negligently or purposely overdosing patients on fentanyl.

Doctor facing medical licensing problems re medical marijuana

In Pennsylvania and throughout the country, controversy continues to surround the topic of marijuana, in particular, whether it should be decriminalized under federal law and whether or not using it in certain forms has medical benefits. Many states have already adopted their own medical marijuana laws. A doctor in a neighboring state was proud to be one of the first physicians to register for the medical marijuana program in his area in 2012, but his work in this particular field has apparently led to medical licensing problems.
