New York Disruptive Physician Defense Attorney
The American Medical Association defines disruptive behavior as “any abusive conduct, including sexual or other forms of harassment, or other forms of verbal or nonverbal conduct that harms or intimidates others to the extent that quality of care or patient safety could be compromised.”
Examples of disruptive conduct may include:
- Incompatibility with patients or staff
- Religious insensitivity
- Cultural insensitivity
- Racial insensitivity
- Uncooperative behavior
- Sexual impropriety
It is important to note that those accused of disruptive conduct may be performing their work with the utmost competency. That said, a claim of disruptive behavior can have an adverse effect on qualified colleagues and may open up the door to lawsuits or complaints to various state and/or federal agencies.
It is no stretch to say that being labeled as disruptive will put a career in jeopardy. It can result in termination, income loss, loss of medical privilege and possible loss of credentialing or recredentialing.
Because of the severity of these issues, it is important to seek out professional representation as soon as possible.
