Attorneys for Healthcare Professional Disciplinary Proceedings

At JHC, we regularly defend Kansas healthcare professionals during formal disciplinary proceedings against their licenses. With a goal of avoiding or mitigating sanctions, we assist during the investigation of complaints all the way through the formal hearing. Because our Topeka healthcare license defense lawyers have defended healthcare professionals for decades, we have developed tried and true strategies for these cases. But we know that every case and every client is unique, so we are always committed to learning the particular facts of your case, discussing your needs and goals, and developing a custom defense plan that works just for you.

Attorneys for Provider Assistance Program Referrals

Kansas law provides that a report relating to a healthcare provider’s inability to practice with reasonable skill and safety due to impairment (including physical or mental disabilities, loss of motor skill, or substance abuse) may be referred to provider assistance or provider wellbeing committee. With reasonable cause to believe you are impaired, your licensing board may require an evaluation and treatment. Sometimes, referrals are made at the application stage based on prior history (think: DUI from before you entered medical school). JHC’s Topeka healthcare licensure defense lawyers are well versed on the process and able to assist with all related issues.

Attorneys for Peer Review Proceedings

Peer review proceedings can be triggered by concerns about patient care and fitness to practice. Regardless of how your peer review procedure comes about, it should be taken very seriously. Adverse findings can result not only in loss of privileges at the particular healthcare facility, but it can have the snowball effect of impacting your privileges at other facilities, insurance provider credentialing, and result in collateral discipline against your license.  Many providers hold licenses in more than one state, which further impacts the snowball effect.  JHC’s Topeka peer review attorneys regularly advise clients regarding peer review issues. To ensure you receive due process, consult with JHC’s Topeka peer review lawyers.

Staff Privileging

When seeking privileges at healthcare facilities you may be subjected to credentialing proceedings. You might also find yourself faced with credentialing proceedings putting the scope or entirety of your existing privileges into jeopardy. Having an attorney help you navigate that credentialing processes can be advantageous. The Topeka healthcare licensure defense lawyers at JHC know how important your hospital affiliations and staff privileges are to your practice. If you are at risk of having your privileges denied, suspended, or terminated, we can help. We provide representation during the fair hearing and formal appeal.
