Case Study: Fighting for Letter of Public Reprimand To Protect a California Nurse

Many of our nursing clients come to us after receiving notice from their licensing boards. In one specific case, a California nurse came to us after being accused of unprofessional conduct and negligence for an incident she was not involved in. Knowing how to handle the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN), our experienced license defense attorneys took on the case and quickly got to work.

To begin, our team carefully reviewed the medical record in question and issued a rebuttal to the Deputy Attorney General. Our nursing client was present during the alleged violation but didn’t participate. Since she chose not to intervene, the BRN had already determined she would need to face some form of disciplinary action. Based on this information, we concluded the case couldn’t easily be dismissed altogether.

Our attorneys decided the best course of action was to obtain a Letter of Public Reprimand for our nursing client. A letter of Public Reprimand is the mildest form of discipline. It does not have any probation and, therefore, would not require our nursing client to comply with any probationary terms or conditions. Additionally, the public notification of a Letter of Public Approval is withdrawn from the Board of Registered Nurses website after three years.
