How your personal life can affect working in the Medical Profession.

By: Attorney, Rickey L. Strong

Hi I'm Rick Strong and I'm a partner with the law firm of Howell, Buchan & Strong.

Today, I want to talk about an unknown thing that can happen to those that actually work in the Medical Practice.

Those that are in the medical practice and other licensed professionals are unaware that what happens in their personal life can and will affect their professional life.

Our firm, what we do is that we assist those when they get into criminal situations, even in a domestic type situation, in which can affect your medical practice or your other practice; if you're not aware and you do not handle the situation properly.

What most people do not realize is that if you are licensed in the State of Florida in any profession, you have to report to your professional board within 30 days of that discretion; whether you've entered to a plea agreement or you have been adjudicated guilty of a particular crime.

You have to report that to your board within 30 days. Failure to report that in itself is a violation of your statue or your professional statute.

So most professional boards, specifically within Health Care there are certain criteria in which you have to provide this information back to the state to get back into your profession, because we've had situations where someone was arrested on a weekend and on Monday when they showed up for work they could no longer work.

There is a process and so it is a very complicated, and it is a legal process. So, most people do not realize that it's not just an application to get back to work. There are certain statutory things that the state's going to look for and there are certain things that are in the Florida Administrative Code that the State has to take into consideration before they allow you to go back into your practice.

At Howell, Buchan & Strong, our medical profession defense team would get into that process as quickly and earnestly as possible, to give you the best opportunity to legally return to work in your medical profession, and your current medical facility or business.
