What do you do when you get a board complaint? First of all, don’t worry! You’re going to be ok. The sky isn’t falling and you’re going to be fine. Your patients are going to keep coming in.
You’ve got to just take a deep breath, get a good healthcare attorney to defend you and you should be in good shape.
It is an incredibly rare occurrence that a board complaint will result in the loss of your chiropractic license, so there is no reason to automatically think, “Oh no! I’m going to lose my license”.
Perhaps the best thing to do is to plan on getting a board complaint every year. Yes, that’s right, plan on receiving a board complaint. If you do that, it makes you stronger. How does it make you stronger?
It makes you do everything more thoroughly and with a more watchful eye. Doing this will:
- Improve your treatment notes.
- Improve your coding and claims.
- Make you more professional and protected in the event that you do have a board complaint.
When you do get that board complaint, and you have a good healthcare attorney to help you out, you just send the complaint over to them and they take care of it.
You are alleviated of the worry and can get right back to taking care of your patients. Because that is what it’s all about, taking really good care of your patients, help get them well, help keep them out of pain.
So keep your eyes on the patients and let the attorneys deal with that board complaint and you’ll be in good shape.
