Becoming a medical professional is an honor and an achievement. Professionals in the medical field are those who have shown their ability to meet certain standards. A medical professional must undergo a rigorous education, engage in supervised on the job training and then prove to the state they can deliver the results required of the members of the medical profession. State agencies have been set up in order to ensure that all those who hold a medical license in New York City and New York State are capable of meeting these standards and helping their patients during any medical procedure. These agencies ensure that all those who practice medicine in the city and state avoid problems that can cause problems for their patients. The Office of Professional Discipline is an agency that empowered by the state to examine any kind of potential professional misconduct in certain fields including the medical field.

Many Possible Breaches

Under the code of conduct set forth by the Office Of Professional Discipline, there are many ways in which a medical professional might face censure for their conduct. A person may be charged with acting with gross negligence while on the job on one occasion. They may be charged after acting poorly on a series of occasions. Someone might be charged with allowing someone who is not licensed to perform a medical procedure that person was not allowed under law. Medical professionals are required to stick to the scope of their practice. They might be charged with going beyond that cope to engage in procedures they are not allowed to do by law.

There are other areas that may create issues for the medical professional under the Office of Professional Discipline. For example, medical information is considered confidential under law. Professionals are not allowed to release such information without permission. Professionals are also required to remain on the job. Walking off the job even when condition are very difficult, can be considered dereliction of duty. The same is true of not helping someone who has need of immediate care such as in the aftermath of an emergency.

A medical professional may also be charged with engaging in criminal actions. Someone who charged with stealing medical supplies or being physically abusive to a patient may face serious consequences as a result of their actions on the job. These issues can come to light at the time or may be brought to light many months or even years later.

Many Professionals

This office investigates many members of the medical profession. Doctors, nurses, physical therapists and pharmacists can find themselves under scrutiny from this board. It is important for all members of the medical profession to understand what might happen as well as what they can do to defend themselves. It’s best to know what charges are likely and what this means for the medical professional in the long run. Even a single charge, if substantiated, can lead to serious and deeply long lasting professional problems. A charge that has been brought to public light and then dismissed may also create issues for the professional as it can tarnish their reputation in the wider world and with their fellow professionals. Penalties for any violation of such laws that is charged true can be vast and wide ranging.

A medical professional who has been found guilty can be subject to formal censure that remains on record for the rest of their professional lives. They can also face problems such as fines and the removal of their ability to practice medicine. A medical professional may even be subject to prison time that can officially end their hopes of continuing in the medical field.

This is why having legal counsel on hand can be helpful. For example, they can suggest a voluntary surrender of their medical license. Doing so means waiting at least three years to regain the license but it can be the best course of action for a given client. A skilled lawyer can help any client discover what they might want to regain that license if they have voluntarily given it up. The legal professional can help them figure out the right path to take.
