License Investigation Against Physician Assistant Closed with Finding of No Probable Cause

Posted on Firm News by Robert Nicholson

In the latest licensure case success, the Firm successfully defended a Physician Assistant against allegations that she improperly ordered an unlicensed and unqualified person to perform a CT scan on a patient.

The Firm investigated the allegations at issue and prepared a rebuttal statement that highlighted evidence that confirmed that the Physician Assistant had acted properly and had not violated the Practice Act.  After consideration of the rebuttal statement prepared by the Firm, the Probable Cause Panel for the licensing board agreed and determined that probable cause did not exist and directed that the case against the Physician Assistant be closed by the Florida Department of Health.
