If you are a nurse who has good professional liability insurance such as Nurses Service Organization (NSO) Insurance, there is no reason why you should have any difficulty in immediately locating an experienced attorney to defend you in a complaint or investigation.
We often hear from callers and clients in professional licensing complaints, Department of Regulatory Activities (DORA) investigations, nursing cases, and DEA cases, that they had good insurance coverage with Nurses Service Organization (NSO) Insurance, but could not find an attorney that would accept it. Often these nurses retain us after action has been taken to appeal or attempt to reverse an adverse disciplinary action taken against their nursing license.
This should not be a difficult task. Our firm and its attorneys have accepted NSO Insurance for over 25 years. Additionally, all of our attorneys are members of The American Association of Nurse Attorneys (TAANA)
Our firm has attorneys that are licensed in and can defend registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, nurse practitioners, and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) in Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Additionally, there are many states, such as Tennessee, Georgia, Oregon, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, and others, which allow us to appear before their boards of nursing and represent clients in these state under their “multi-jurisdictional practice” rules, because this is an area in which we routinely practice.
Legal areas in which we can represent a NSO insured that NSO will pay for include: administrative hearings, complaints against your nursing license, an investigation of a complaint made against your nursing license, a deposition you may be subpoenaed for, a complaint made for violation of HIPAA or patient privacy, and many others.
