How Can I Defend Myself Against a Complaint?
Upon receipt of a complaint, the Board’s investigator forwards the complaint to the licensee for a response. Within the timeframe indicated in the investigator’s letter and the Board’s administrative rules, the licensee must respond to the complaint. A defense starts with a thorough and organized letter to the MRSC explaining the circumstances which led to the complaint, claim or lawsuit and all mitigating and exculpatory factors. Referencing specific portions of relevant medical records are helpful.
