Nevada: More Disclosure of Malpractice Information

Yesterday the Nevada Board of Medical Examiners decided to expand the information about physicians available on its website.  Currently the website lists the names of physicians who have been disciplined and the nature of the infraction.  In the wake of a hepatitis C outbreak in southern Nevada, the website will now list, according to KTNV, "all doctors named in malpractice cases that ended in a settlement, award or judgment."  Given the number of physicians who may be named in a suit, one hopes being listed on the website is at least tied to personally having settled or received an adverse award or judgment.
