Gov. Schwarzenegger sweeps out California nursing board

Los Angeles Times, July 14, 2009

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger replaced most members of the state Board of Registered Nursing, citing the unacceptable time it takes to discipline nurses accused of egregious misconduct. The move came a day after The Los Angeles Times and the nonprofit news organization ProPublica published an investigation finding that it takes the board an average of three years and five months to investigate and close complaints against nurses. During that time, nurses accused of wrongdoing are free to practice and move from hospital to hospital.
