Criminal law in healthcare
Healthcare institutions and healthcare professionals are increasingly confronted with criminal law. For example in fraud cases, a check by the FIOD in the event of possible tax fraud, end of life issues or an emergency leading to serious damages or the death of a patient. Alleged sexual abuse can also lead to a criminal investigation and (possible) prosecution.
In addition, the judicial authorities regularly request the cooperation of healthcare institutions in the criminal prosecution of third parties. In this regard an area of tension can often arise between the investigative interest and other interests, such as the right to privacy of patients or staff.
The specialists of Nysingh have a lot of experience in (medical) criminal law. We’d be happy to help you.
Criminal law in education
Criminal investigations in education, e.g. on suspicions of sexually transgressive behaviour, always have a major impact on those involved. In addition, emotions and press sensitivity play an important role. Educational institutions have a duty of care towards parents, pupil(s), student(s) and employee(s). This complex field often requires extra attention, tact and caution. Nysingh will be happy to assist you – also in these sensitive areas. We work closely together with a specialised and experienced criminal lawyer in such matters.
