Disclosure bill could benefit health care
Sacramento Business Journal

Senate Bill 1033, offered by Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, would require doctors to disclose probationary sanctions by the Medical Board for gross negligence, sexual misconduct or substance abuse that put patients at risk. New patients would receive the disclosures in the paperwork they receive from their doctor’s office, and they would be required to sign acknowledgment that they have received the disclosures.
