Shouldn’t Someone With Your Experience Feel Secure Rather Than At Risk? We Believe So Too.
Some health-related professions exist in an environment where the relationship between patient and professional is intentionally very close.
It may be essential to make physical contact or communicate on an emotional level in order to help a patient or cherished family pet. These techniques are appropriate if used correctly and in the proper setting. However, accusations may arise if your actions are perceived inaccurately.
Unwelcomed questions may be raised regarding your method of treatment, or make way for a more comprehensive review of patient records, billing, or your licensure history. Common allegations resulting in an investigation, conference, or complaint may be related to the following:
- Substance abuse
- Drug diversion
- Boundary violations
- Discipline by another state (Sister state discipline)
- Unlicensed assistants
- Improper referrals
- Record keeping
- Improper supervision of assistants
- Criminal convictions
- Nursing home abuse
- Failure to comply with reporting requirements
