Tips on investigating health professionals and the boards that regulate them

Investigating health professionalsIt's likely you've read some of the stories about health professionals gone wrong in recent months. They include reports by Blythe Bernhard and Jeremy Kohler of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that patients are kept in the dark about problems with their doctors and hospitals and that Missouri's disciplinary system seems geared toward protecting doctors’ livelihoods; a series of articles from Charles Ornstein and Tracy Weber of ProPublica showing that patients suffered as problem nurses were kept on the job in California and state agencies have failed to report disciplined caregivers to a federal database; and Bill Heisel's chronicles of "Doctors Behaving Badly" at ReportingOnHealth.org.

Now we have some tips from a number of AHCJ members who have checked up on the medical professionals in their area – and the boards that regulate them.
