Description

Nevada is experiencing a "medical malpractice crisis" in which doctors are leaving the state in droves because their malpractice premiums have skyrocketed. Frank Mullen realizes that Nevadans could find out more about a contractor or car mechanic's legal record than a legal record of their doctors' malpractice settlements. The Nevada legislature recently reformed this, but still, the Nevada Board of Medical Examiners' information about doctors is often incomplete and sometimes wrong. The newspaper reviewed databases and documents, and cracked the code of a federal medical database.
