Did you know that any patient, colleague, pharmacist, or hospital can file a complaint against a physician at any time? No matter what the complaint may be, the state medical board is required to start a preliminary investigation, at the very least. I was recently quoted in the Medscape article, “The Dangers of a Medical Board Investigation: How to Protect Yourself,” which goes into length about these boards, what can spur an investigation, and how to protect yourself during an investigation. You can read the full article here.
If you have any questions on this or any other related matters, please contact Sandra Jarva Weiss, Chair of the Health Care and Life Sciences Practice Group, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
