Inappropriate Contact or Relationships with Patients

Ohio Lawyers Counter Charges of Inappropriate Relationships with Patients

Proven firm represents doctors and nurses when improper contact is alleged

Patients rely on doctors and nurses to help them get through difficult times. The extraordinary quality of care that medical providers deliver can create strong bonds between them and the people they treat. Unfortunately, misinterpretations sometimes occur, and lines are occasionally crossed. In these cases, the charges that result can threaten a healthcare professional’s license and reputation with frightening speed.  Serving clients in the Cleveland area and throughout Ohio, Sindell and Sindell, LLP vigorously represents doctors, nurses and other medical providers who are accused of engaging in improper contact or relationships with patients. Our attorneys have 50 combined years of legal experience and draw upon professional backgrounds that make our firm uniquely qualified to handle these issues.

The unique relationship between medical professionals and the patients they serve present certain risks. If you’ve been confronted with a charge that you crossed a line, we will work immediately to unearth the truth and safeguard your ability to continue your practice without restriction. In a free initial consultation, our lawyers can advise you on:

  • Professional standards — Depending on the specific type of care provided, detailed standards might exist regarding personal relationships with patients. Our knowledgeable and seasoned attorneys understand the rules that apply to any type of practitioner.
  • Licensing issues — We represent clients aggressively before the State Medical Board of Ohio and the Ohio Board of Nursing to oppose unfair license restrictions, suspensions and revocations that arise from relationship concerns and other issues.
  • Criminal accusations — If the alleged misconduct that occurred during treatment triggers a criminal charge such as assault or sexual battery, our proven defense lawyers will assert your rights and outline your legal options.

No matter what the specific details are, you can create even more trouble if you try to work the situation out yourself or assume that the problem will go away on its own. We offer effective, determined guidance to help resolve these issues favorably for the medical professionals we represent.
