LLR Disciplinary board and administrative actions can originate in many ways including a complaint by:
- A patient or family member of a patient,
- A client,
- A co-worker or your employer, or
- A spouse or significant other.
While the complaint will vary and depend upon the profession, allegations may include neglect, malpractice, incompetence, and substandard care or treatment.
Disciplinary action may also be initiated as a result of a criminal charge including:
- Drug or alcohol abuse, including DUI
- Theft or embezzlement
- Fraud or misrepresentation
- Violent crime, including domestic violence
If you are facing criminal prosecution, the fact that you are found not guilty on a criminal charge is not binding on your disciplinary action. In other words, you can be found not guilty and still lose your professional license.
Regardless of whether criminal charges are filed, you may be facing:
- Public reprimand
- Steep fines
- Suspension or
- the loss of your license
