Every doctor, every nurse and most other health care providers must be licensed to legally practice in the United States. Each state has a licensing board, usually one board for each profession. These licensing boards are supposed to police the profession and take away licenses – permanently or temporarily – or order education or other remedies, for any health care practitioner who commits malpractice and hurts patients.
Elsewhere on our web site, you will find a Health Care Advocates’ Power Kit, which will give you the tools for how to make a complaint to a licensing board about a practitioner whom you think has done a poor job with you or a family member. We list the federal and state government agencies, give exact addresses for those near our firm in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, and offer tips for composing your complaint letter.
