Medspa Legal & Legislation > MediSpa Director

I have been asked to serve as a Medical Director for a medispa that does IPL, Botox, and fillers. What are the liabilities and reasonable compensation?

12.12 | Unregistered CommenterBlaine, IM

Check with your state medical board to ensure you know what your responsibilities are. Do you need to be on site when procedures are being performed?

Should you take this responsibility Blaine, you are liable for everything--and I mean everything that goes on the clinic. Even anything that happens beyond uncontrollable circumstances, it's on you. Any type of compensation wouldn't be enough. Your license and reputation is at stake here. Think about it.

Your state medical board as well as the state boards of nursing and cosmetology have guidelines regarding the licensing and duties of a medical spa director. I am hoping that the request you mention is from a physician group-as the case in most states is that non-physician personnel cannot own a medical practice. There are other arrangements for this type of business which can work both legally and ethically. What state are you in?
