Most state agencies allow only a few weeks before an investigator's report will be irreversible (even if it is wrong). The consequences of ignoring a state investigator's charges can be very severe. Revocation, suspension, or even voluntary surrender of a professional license can prevent the license holder from ever again working with vulnerable adults or children, or in any job where he or she might be in a facility where these patients are treated. Even more serious is the fact that the negative action will be reported in an FBI criminal background check nationwide. Protect yourself. Fight for a fair ruling.
