Public Citizen strongly urged Maryland Senate’s Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee to soundly reject Senate Bill 372 because it would (a) seriously compromise patient access to nearly half of the information about important disciplinary actions taken by the Maryland Board of Physicians against physicians who may have been found to have engaged in serious misconduct, (b) make it more difficult for the Board to investigate and discipline physicians under certain circumstances, and (c) ultimately, undermine patient safety protections in Maryland.
