How to Search for Disciplinary Actions Against a Doctor or Other Healthcare Provider in Washington
Posted Monday, July 20, 2009 by Christopher L. Thayer
In Washington State, the Department of Health regulates physicians, pharmacists and certain other healthcare providers. This includes potential disciplinary actions for misconduct. Some of this information is public record and searchable in an online database. Please visit the following link and follow the drop-down menus to search for a doctor or healthcare provider. Just because there has been a finding entered against a healthcare provider does not necessarily mean that they have committed medical malpractice, although it can serve as a red flag and provide helpful information.
