Protecting your license before the South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners

The South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners is overseen by the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (LLR).

The South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners regulates:

  • Physicians both MDs and Dos;
  • Physician Assistants;
  • Acupuncturists;
  • Anesthesiologists’ Assistants; and
  • Respiratory Care Practitioners.

Despite your best efforts, the reality is that anyone can file a complaint against you. Patients, employees, or other medical professionals can make a complaint to the South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners potentially jeopardizing your South Carolina medical license.

Some of the most common complaints include:

  • Medical Negligence;
  • Criminal conduct and/or a criminal conviction;
  • Practicing while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or mental
  • Illegal or prescription drug abuse or addiction;
  • Medication violations;
  • Unlicensed practice and/or practicing outside of the scope;
  • Poor documentation or record keeping;
  • Sexual misconduct, harassment, and/or maintaining an inappropriate
  • Fraud and misrepresentation;
  • Unlawful billing practices;
  • Patient abuse; and
  • Boundary violations.

Medical License Defense Attorney

As a licensed professional, it is important to understand that a complaint filed with the South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners can result in a public reprimand, suspension, hefty fines, and potentially revocation of your South Carolina Medical License. If you are seeking to obtain a medical license in South Carolina, you should understand that similar prior conduct could prevent you from being able to obtain a South Carolina Medical license. A free consultation with a South Carolina professional licensing attorney can help you prepare you for appearing before the South Carolina Medical Board.

Responding to a South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners Complaint

An important fact to remember is just because a complaint is brought against you, does not mean you are guilty,  or that you have done anything wrong. What it does mean is that your license may be at stake. Contacting a South Carolina professional licensing defense attorney before you respond to the investigator will ensure that you understand your legal rights before it is too late.

A prompt investigation will follow when a South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners Complaint is made. During the investigation into your South Carolina medical board complaint, an investigator from the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation will contact you. Be aware that anything you tell the investigator may be used against you.

In the event that you are accused of diversion or failing to properly waste a controlled substance, an investigator with the Department of Health and Environmental Control (“DHEC”) may also reach out to you and you may face criminal charges.

Always contact a South Carolina professional licensing defense attorney prior to speaking with the investigator, even if the investigator says they just want to hear your side of the story so he/she can close the case.

If you are facing criminal prosecution, the fact that you are found not guilty of 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.

Losing your medical license can cost you your livelihood. It can bring with it not only legal but financial and emotional problems as well. If an investigator contacts you about a misconduct matter, call a South Carolina professional licensing attorney immediately. Call us for a free consultation before it is too late.

South Carolina Medical Board Discipline

If you are found guilty of professional misconduct, you may be subject to a reprimand, suspension, or revocation of your license, as well as a hefty fine. Depending upon the circumstances, a medical professional may also be subject to a monitoring agreement with the South Carolina Recovering Professionals Program (“RPP”).

Handling a Referral to RPP

RPP helps those believed to be suffering from alcohol or drug abuse. RPP works in conjunction with LRADAC and the LLR. It is the approved monitoring program for licensees of the South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners.

If you are being investigated for a complaint regarding drug or alcohol use, you may be referred to RPP for an assessment to determine whether you suffer from alcohol or drug abuse or addiction. If you are found to suffer from alcohol or drug addiction, RPP will likely determine that you need treatment and continued monitoring. Standard monitoring agreements may last up to five years.

RPP is tasked with ensuring you are able to return to practice. If you are referred for an evaluation with RPP, call our professional licensing defense attorneys to discuss the facts of your case and what you can expect.

The Strom Law Firm, LLC represents and defends South Carolina professionals in disciplinary matters involving allegations of professional misconduct as well as in criminal matters. If you are a physician, physician’s assistant, or any other medical professional and are being investigated by LLR, give us a call for a free consultation. (803) 252-4800.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
