Doctors and Nurses
Assembly member Mary Salas (D-Chula Vista) has amended legislation (AB 632) that would expand state whistleblower protections to apply to physicians or surgeons on staff at a health care facility. Under current law, the protections apply only to employees of the facility (Bill text, 4/17). The measure is before the Assembly Appropriations Committee (Bill Status, 4/17).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
