Case Result: Nurse Practitioner Vindicated After Unstable Patient Didn’t Follow Procedure for Medical Records

Professional:
Advanced Nurse Practitioner

Primary issue:
Client, an advanced nurse practitioner, was reported to the Florida Department of Health (DOH), after a patient accused them of failing to provide copies of their medical records. The patient, a mentally unstable individual with a history of violent behavior, alleged to have requested their records in writing and to having provided payment for copies.

Argument:
Our Florida healthcare license and regulatory lawyers asserted that the patient never provided a properly signed request for patient records and did not pay for said records. Client was not aware of this until they received a DOH letter of investigation accusing them of practice act violations for such failure.

Result:
In less than five months, the case was dismissed without a finding of probable cause.

Areas of Law:
Department of Health Investigations & Complaints
