License Defense For Occupational Therapist
Occupational Therapist License Defense
If you have questions about your occupational therapist license or need help defending it, call for a free consult with a lawyer, (503) 232-9280.
If you are an occupational therapist who has been contacted by the Occupational Therapy Licensing Board in Oregon about an allegation or complaint, we can help you defend your license.
Once someone files a complaint with the Occupational Therapy Board, regardless of the nature of the complaint, the board is required to open an investigation. Depending on what the OT Board finds, it can:
- dismiss the complaint
- dismiss with a letter of concern
- propose discipline
It is important to note that the Occupational Therapy Board posts all final disciplines on its “Licensee Look Up” and reports the information to the national Healthcare Integrity and Protection Data Bank, which can impact your career for years to come.
Even a dismissal with letter of concern can have far-reaching implications, which is why it’s important to have an experienced license defense attorney on your side.
The most common allegations against occupational therapists include the following:
- unprofessional conduct
- unethical conduct
- violations of the rules adopted by the Occupational Therapy Board
- gross negligence or incompetence in performing professional duties
- practicing on an expired license
- failure to complete required continuing education
If you’ve had a complaint filed against you with the Occupational Therapy Board, we can help you through the entire process, including: investigation, discipline, and appeals.
