April 06, 2018

Olympians and other star athletes whose testimony helped bring a doctor to justice for sexually molesting scores of patients and women with abuse cases pending against doctors join state Senator Jerry Hill in a news conference to announce his introduction of Senate Bill 1448: The Patients’ Right to Know Act of 2018. The bill builds on his earlier efforts to pass patient safety legislation by requiring physicians and surgeons placed on probation in misconduct cases to notify patients. His bill also extends the proposed requirement for medical doctors, to osteopaths, doctors of naturopathic medicine, chiropractors and acupuncturists.
