What is the best way to handle an investigation or prosecution by the Pennsylvania Board of Nursing or Medicine?
If you are a licensed medical professional such as a Doctor or Nurse and you are facing a license prosecution, a lawyer from the Pennsylvania Department of State, Office of General Counsel has been assigned to prosecute your case at a hearing in Harrisburg before your particular licensing board. For example, if you are a Doctor or Physician Assistant facing license prosecution, a prosecutor will be assigned to present (or prosecute) the case against you to the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine; if you are a Nurse, this lawyer will present your case before the Board of Nursing.
If you find yourself in this precarious situation, it is wise to hire a lawyer whose duty it is to represent your interests in these proceedings. Did you know that alternatives exist besides appearing before your licensing board in Harrisburg? Frequently, a negotiated settlement to the prosecution can be concluded. This negotiated settlement is called a “Consent Agreement” which can reduce or eliminate penalties including fines and license suspension.
