How to protect your professional license as a doctor

Protecting your professional license as a doctor, no matter the industry, is vital to your success. No matter how much you take into consideration practicing safely, you might still run into problems simply because people want to cause problems. There's plenty you can do to protect your professional license and we will discuss those tips in today's post.

One of the first things you must do is contact your medical malpractice insurance carrier when you hear from the board that you are being investigated. Most policies require this action, and even if they don't, it's a very smart move to make.

The next step is to contact a Cleveland firm and speak with an experienced administrative law attorney about your situation. This attorney will have direct knowledge and experience of the administrative law in the state of Ohio. This attorney will also have experience dealing with your board on other occasions.

Consult with top experts in your field about possibly testifying on your behalf during the investigation by the board. Do not choose an expert based solely on a book he or she has written or the recommendation from a trusted colleague. You need to research these experts, look at their careers and make an informed decision if they will be asked to speak on your behalf. You cannot take this lightly. This is your career that's at stake.

Be as active in your defense as possible. When you become passive and let your attorney handle everything, you put yourself at a disadvantage. You need to make sure your attorney understands the case, the context of it and your thinking at the time of the incident in question.

You also need to take care of yourself during the investigation. This is a time of high stress, so be sure you monitor your health.

If you are under investigation by the licensing board for your medical profession, contact our firm in Cleveland, Ohio, to help you protect your professional license and fight the allegations against you.
