Case Result: LARA Dismisses Administrative Complaint Against Pain Management Specialist Accused of Negligence for Not Sending Patient to ER for Alleged Nerve Injury

Professional:
Pain Management Specialists

Primary issue:
Client Pain Management Physician was accused of negligence and failing to transfer a patient to the ER after alleged nerve injury to the patient during cervical facet injections. Patient reported the physician to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).

Argument:
Our Michigan healthcare regulatory and licensing lawyers prepared client for the LARA investigator interview and provided documentation of:

  • patient’s movement during procedure as cause of alleged injury;
  • patient’s failure to bring forth complaint of specific symptoms post-procedure that would have led to a transfer to the ER;
  • clinical guidelines and publications documenting the alleged injury was a known risk of the procedure; and
  • evidence of physician’s completion of relevant continuing medical education and letters of support from colleagues.

Result:
The case was dismissed by LARA without further action.
