NY bill reveals names of probed doctors

Newsday, June 25, 2008

A patient safety bill agreement announced this week by New York Gov. David A. Paterson now requires the names of doctors charged with misconduct to be made public. Also, these physicians now will be given just one day from the time formal charges are made to provide office records to investigators. The bill was created in response to the case of a Long Island doctor who put patients' lives in danger by practicing improper infection control.
