Years and years ago, when I had to appear before the BON, I went alone.
Nobody told me I should have representation. I thought it was just a prelim thing, not a court hearing, and I didn't need it.
Besides, I did nothing wrong. So what could they do to me because I was innocent?
Do you get the attorney when you suspect you're in trouble, or when the first piece of registered mail hits your mailbox?
Attorneys are ssssssssooooooooooo expensive. When do you decide to invest the money? I know the loss of my livelihood is even more expensive, so when do I make the call?
There is no question a wrong med or a bad outcome that's your fault, warrants legal advice.
But what about a facility that's just throwing allegations against you, to deflect attention from themselves?
