Webinar: Physician Misconduct - Impact on Licensure and Privileges in the #MeToo EraOctober 25, 2018

In the face of ever-increasing demands in today’s health care environment, there has been a rise in the number of health care professionals exhibiting “disruptive” behavior. Join us as Brach Eichler Member Debra W. Levine discusses the kinds of physician behavior currently under scrutiny and the disciplinary consequences that can result.

Among the topics to be discussed:

  • Co-workers and patients alike are emboldened, in part by the #MeToo movement, to report any harassing conduct by their physician.

  • Complaints run the gamut from rudeness and harsh or inappropriate language to sexual misconduct.

  • Wary of facing serious liability, ASCs, hospitals, and other facilities, as well as licensure boards, are increasingly acting on these complaints.

  • Not being aware can result in disciplinary action, some of which could have a devastating impact on careers and livelihoods.

Debra W. Levine has an extensive background in the law governing health care and professional licensure. Prior to joining Brach Eichler, Debra was, for 27 years, counsel to the New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners, where she was responsible for advising the Board on disciplinary, investigative, and regulatory matters.
