Tips For A Nurse In Trouble

Posted on August 19th, 2019 by Tom Zimmerman

As a nursing license defense attorney serving Chicago, Zimmerman Law Offices, P.C. knows that having a complaint against you as a nurse can harm your nursing license. We want to make sure that if you ever have a complaint filed against you, you know how to handle it and what the correct steps are to make sure you keep your license.

Contact Insurance Carrier

Reach out to your insurance carrier, as they may help cover the costs of the investigation and defense. If you do not have insurance, you’ll need to carry your own malpractice insurance and it should cover regulatory actions.

 

Hire Experienced Attorney

You most likely do not have the time or the knowledge to effectively defend your nursing license, so hiring an experienced attorney can help you navigate the upcoming obstacles you’re bound to face.

 

Be Professional And Truthful

You should be professional with the Nursing Board and treat them with respect. Additionally, do not lie to the Board as they usually have documents and statements from witnesses to verify the facts. You need to be ethical and honest throughout the duration of the process with the Board because they are the ones making the final decision.

 

Don’t Talk About The Complaint

Many nurses who are reported to the Board are actually good nurses and were just caught in a bad or sticky situation. Try not to discuss the complaint with others around you as it can cause more harm than good to your case.
