Patient safety bill would publicize doctors’ names
Newsday, May 22, 2008
New York Gov. David A. Paterson has introduced a patient safety bill that would give the state more authority in health investigations and make public names of doctors under scrutiny. Health Commissioner Richard Daines said the bill would give the New York Department of Health a "crisper statement of authority" to speed up the investigation process and would ensure doctors are aware of infection control practices.
