NYC Nurse License Defense Lawyers

Protecting Your Nursing License

Experienced and Aggressive Representation from Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek

Nursing is an honorable profession, but accusations of professional misconduct can quickly lead to a nursing license suspension or worse. Unfortunately, all too often, hardworking nurses become scapegoats for the incomplete or faulty policies of their facilities, and sometimes even when their supervisors dislike them. Nurses can be accused, terminated, and disciplined for convenience or when hospital administrators deem it an easy way to protect their own agendas.

The New York City nurse license defense attorneys at Spodek Law Group, led by Attorney Todd Spodek, have successfully represented numerous NYC nurses in all disciplinary matters before the Department of Education, Office of Professional Discipline (OPD), and the Department of Health against various allegations of professional misconduct, and even in criminal matters.

Reasons Nurses Can Get Disciplined

Our lawyers are well aware that the stakes are high when a nurse’s license is in jeopardy. In New York, the NYS Department of Education’s Office Professional Discipline (OPD) investigates and prosecutes professional misconduct of nurses. A nurse practicing in a New York medical institution or facility can be charged with professional misconduct for several reasons, including drug diversion, fraudulent practices, practicing with gross incompetence or negligence, practicing beyond the authorized scope of practice, practicing while being intoxicated or impaired by alcohol, drugs, or mental disability, and more.

How Nurses are Investigated for New York Professional Misconduct Cases

Disciplinary procedures can be triggered by the filing of a complaint at the Regional Office of Professional Discipline (OPD) or in the case of a criminal conviction. The state Department of Probation notifies the Department of Education of the case disposition and they investigate the matter further. The lion’s share of complaints are generated by employers and patients. Our New York OPD attorneys are well-versed in handling defense cases for nurses against the OPD and are skillful negotiators when it comes to arriving at the best outcomes for our clients.

The Importance of Hiring an Experienced Attorney to Fight a Disciplinary Case

We strongly recommend that nurses who are under investigation by the OPD seek legal counsel right away. Attempting to repair the problems by yourself is not the best course of action, as your license, reputation, and ability to earn a living are all in jeopardy. Our experienced attorneys have established us as the go-to law firm for New York nurses investigated by the OPD.

The Best Course of Action When an OPD Investigation Letter Arrives

When an investigator contacts you concerning a misconduct accusation, reach out to our experienced New York nursing license defense attorneys quickly. Any information the investigator gets from you will become part of the investigative report, which is frequently damaging to your cause. Refrain from speaking with the investigator, and if the letter requests that you disclose documents, you may be obligated to furnish them, but you have no obligation to honor an interview request.
This advice also applies when you are being investigated by a law enforcement agency for any criminal activity. Insist on first speaking about the matter with an attorney before giving up any information at all. Call our New York nursing license defense team for a confidential consultation. Our team has the experience and knowledge to help you protect your nursing license and your livelihood.

The Consequences of Professional Misconduct Charges for Nurses

As noted earlier, nursing is a challenging profession, and years of hard work go into earning a nursing license. However, a professional misconduct charge can easily lead to the revocation of a nursing license. If accusations of professional misconduct are substantiated, nursing disciplinary actions are sure to ensue, and this can lead to severe consequences such as a nursing license suspension or worse.

The consequences of a nursing license suspension are significant, and it can impact a nurse’s career and future opportunities. A suspension can damage their reputation, affect their ability to secure new employment, and can even lead to financial hardship.
