New York Physical Therapy Defense Lawyers
Physical therapists are an integral part of helping people recover after they have undergone a surgery or sustained an injury. Patients rely on these medical professionals to help them get back on their feet and make a full recovery in the wake of an accident. It is important for a patient to be able to trust their physical therapist in order to accomplish their goals. Unfortunately, people make mistakes that may hinder this trust, and medical professionals are not exempt from this behavior. When a physical therapist makes a mistake, whether it be inappropriate relations with a patient or an issue of substance abuse, their career is at stake.
If a complaint is made on your behalf to the Office of Professional Discipline (OPD), you may be in jeopardy of losing your license and putting an end to your career. When a complaint is made, the Office of Professional Discipline will investigate you for improper conduct and you will be required to attend a hearing regarding the findings of the investigation. The most common investigations of physical therapists include those for fraudulent billing, substance abuse, or inappropriate sexual relations. When you are investigated by the OPD, they will speak with your colleagues, patients, and others who know you to determine the legitimacy of the complaint.
