The North Carolina Medical Board recently decided that doctors should be required to tell their current and future patients of their wrongdoings. North Carolina has been criticized over the past few years for failing to protect its residents from bad doctors. The Board now requires its 35,000 physicians practicing medicine or licensed in North Carolina to submit medical malpractice claims as well as criminal activity. Consumers can now go to and view malpractice payments, misdemeanor and felony convictions, hospital suspensions and even discipline by medical boards in other states. This new website is an extremely helpful tool for patients looking for a new doctor and also for those waiting to check the repot card, in a sense, of his/her current doctor. Careless doctors, at least in North Carolina, now have to take responsibility for their actions.

As St. Louis medical malpractice and injury lawyers, we believe that each state should have a law similar to this. Contact us at 1-800-517-0602 to talk about your Missouri or Illinois injury case.
