Follow-Up Report on the Legal Issues Concerning Florida Board of Medicine Disciplinary Practices
Report 98-11, August 1998
- In 1997 the Legislature passed a requirement that the Board of Medicine review complaints filed against physicians within six months of receipt.
- To further reduce the length of disciplinary process, the board has limited the time in which a physician decides how to respond to his or her case to 21 days. Physicians who elect to negotiate consent agreements must submit a signed settlement agreement within 60 days.
- The Board of Medicine made changes to provide greater consumer access to information by publishing the names of physicians who have been disciplined by the board or have paid multiple malpractice claims.
