Advocacy and Representation of Health Care Professionals
Health-care professionals should consult legal counsel after a complaint has been filed against them, and deal with the matter expediently and with integrity, says Toronto health lawyer Brooke Shekter.
Complaints come through each profession’s Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee, says Shekter, associate with TTL Health Law.
She tells AdvocateDaily.com that people in this situation should follow six key steps.
I have had the good fortune of dealing with Tracey Tremayne-Lloyd for a health law issue over the past three years. Tracey was hired by myself and several colleagues with regards to a professional issue for which she provided timely, clear and insightful thoughts as to the direction we should be taking in the matter.
At no time did I feel Tracey was eager to engage nor afraid of pursuing the issue. On the contrary, I felt she provided an objective perspective and quite well thought through advice.
In summary, our dealings with Tracey have provided some personal relief from an otherwise stressful situation. I would highly recommend her services.
