Professional license defense: Dealing with background checks

If you are in the process of acquiring a professional license in California, you will likely have to submit to a background check of some kind. Industries require these checks to ensure that applicants are eligible to hold a professional license and do not have an unfavorable history. These screenings have become more common in recent years as employers and professional boards seek to minimize risk.

How do I prepare for my hearing before the OAH?

If you are a professional person such as a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, etc. who is duly licensed to practice your profession in California, you know how important your license is. It is your only means of earning your living doing the work you love and for which you are highly trained. Should your licensing agency discipline you or revoke your license for an alleged infraction, you can appeal its decision by requesting a hearing before the Office of Administrative Hearings.

Diversion as an alternative to disciplinary action

Drug and alcohol abuse impact people in all professions, and nurses are certainly no exception. In fact, because of the innate stress of their jobs and the easy access to prescription drugs, nurses — like other health care professionals — can be more prone to develop addictions than people in the general population.

Story shows how fraud allegations can threaten a medical license

A medical professional's duty goes beyond providing health care, therapy or treatments. These individuals are expected to maintain professionalism in all situations. Most people would agree that engaging in health care fraud is a clear example of nonprofessional behavior. Such actions not only threaten careers, they can also defy even the best efforts to establish a professional license defense.

Medical spa: Ignorance is not a good professional license defense

A relatively new form of medical care is taking California by storm -- the medical spa. These popular businesses provide clients with the ultimate in cosmetic-centered treatments and procedures, all in a relaxing environment.
