Allegations - Nursing Licenses

If an allegation has been made against you, or someone has filed a complaint with the state board of nursing, you may need a lawyer! Call (503) 232-9280 to schedule a free consult with Kevin Keaney.

Have you recently received a notice from the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN) that someone has filed a complaint against you?

Anyone who thinks you have acted illegally or dangerously as a nurse practicing in Oregon can file their complaint with the OSBN, and, by law, that person will be able to then remain anonymous.

The most common allegations against nurses include:
• incompetence
• gross negligence
• unprofessional conduct
sexual misconduct
substance dependence or abuse
• nursing license fraud
expired nursing license
• unlicensed activities

Complaints against nurses are usually filed by the following people:
• employers
• co-workers
• state agencies
• patients
• families or friends of patients

If the OSBN has notified you that someone has recently filed a complaint, you might believe that you don’t need to hire an attorney immediately, preferring to handle the situation on your own. But the complaint is just the beginning of a process that could potentially tarnish your reputation, become a permanent part of your work record, and/or result in the loss of your job and even your career (if your nursing license is revoked).

We’ve found, from our experience in working with nurses to address violations and/or defend their professional licenses, there’s no such thing as a “simple complaint.”  Even a letter of concern should raise a flag that you may need legal support, especially if you don’t carry nursing malpractice insurance

During your free consultation, we can talk about your situation and options and outline the process of an investigation and settlement. For more details and information about complaints to the state nursing board, or to schedule a free consultation, please call (503) 232-9280, or e-mail us here at moc.y1490531887enrot1490531887tases1490531887run@t1490531887catno1490531887c1490531887
