Nevada medical board to post doctors’ malpractice history
June 13, 2008 -- Nevada regulators decided today that they will post more information about doctors' medical malpractice history on the state Board of Medical Examiners Web site after a hepatitis C outbreak in southern Nevada shook the public’s confidence in the state’s medical community.
The hepatitis C outbreak led to the biggest public health notification operation in U.S. history. Officials have linked 84 cases of the potentially deadly liver disease to a certain endoscopy center in southern Nevada. Officials notified some 50,000 patients that they might be at risk.
Federal and local health officials blamed the outbreak on unsafe injection procedures regularly performed at the center. Officials believe doctors ordered the staff to reuse syringes, according to news reports.Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C. - We’re here for you . . .
