An Assertive Defense For Nurses Facing Disciplinary Matters
A nurse whose license is threatened by a New York State Education Department, Office of the Professions or New Jersey Board of Nursing disciplinary proceeding should immediately seek out an attorney who understands the processes and personnel involved. Failure to do so could result in you losing your license and livelihood.
At the New York City office of Rivas Goldstein, LLP, our health care law attorneys represent nurse practitioners (NPs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered professional nurses (RNs) in all types of licensing defense matters. Our lawyers have decades of combined experience assisting nurses, physicians and other medical practitioners with administrative licensing issues and use that experience to defend nurses against the New York State Education Department’s Office of Professions (OP) and New Jersey Board of Nursing.
Defense Against A Wide Range Of Alleged Misconduct
Our New York and New Jersey nurse licensing attorneys advocate for clients who face disciplinary actions because of misconduct allegations such as:
- Unprofessional conduct
- Failing to maintain patient records adequately
- Drug or alcohol issues
- Alleged drug diversion
- Failing to maintain the proper standard of care
- Criminal conviction
Having an experienced attorney who understands what is at stake can often be the difference between losing your nursing license and retaining it. Our lawyers provide a strong license defense to nurses at all stages of the complaint process, vigorously working toward positive outcomes.
Our clients often can keep their licenses because we demonstrate that the allegations were incorrect or unfounded or that there were mitigating circumstances. We investigate the matter and identify colleagues and patients whose testimony will strengthen a client’s case. We have also been successful in obtaining dismissals and lesser penalties, such as remedial education or warnings.
