New York Medical License Restoration Lawyer
Most professionals in the healthcare industry can practice only when they have a license. Doctors and nurses are required to meet certain standards to receive a license. Failure to meet industry standards can result in the revocation or suspension of your medical practice license by your state board. The purpose of a medical license revocation or suspension is not to punish the professional but to protect the public. State boards are required to maintain public health and that is why they have been given the authority to revoke and suspend medical licenses.
Each state in the U.S. has a medical board that has been given the mandate to grant or revoke medical licenses to professionals in the healthcare industry. When complaints are filed against certain medical professionals, the board will review the details of the case and decide necessary steps to take including issuing a warning and revoking or suspending the license of the medical professional.
There are many reasons why professionals can lose their license including incompetence, gross negligence, criminal offences, and immorality. Doctors are likely to lose their medical licenses if they practice medicine beyond the authority of their licenses. State laws set reasons for medical license revocation.
Each state sets the actual reasons and circumstances that could lead to medical license revocation. The reasons for medical license suspension or revocation must be specific. Courts and state boards will rule against medical license revocation if the reasons offered for revocation are vague or general and are not supported by more specific reasons. State medical boards have the independence to make rulings on a case-by-case basis.
Defense against Charges
Some of the defenses against medical practice violation include denial of due process, self-incrimination, and violation of equal protection clause. Despite these defenses, state boards can revoke or suspend a doctor’s license in case of negligence and incompetence because the board has a responsibility to protect public health.
Difference between Medical License Suspension and License Revocation
A medical license suspension is a temporary removal of medical license privileges, which can last anywhere from a week to a year. If your medical license is suspended, you may be asked to surrender your physical license to the office of the state board. You will not be able to legally practice medicine until the suspension is lifted or suspension period is over and your license restored.
While you will get your license automatically restored once the suspension period ends, license revocation takes effect for an indefinite period until certain conditions such as paying fines, obtaining insurance and completing drug screening are met.
