Contact Governor Cuomo and request that he veto legislation (S.6678-A/A.7991-A) requiring every physician's “practice setting” to post a sign regarding how a patient can file a misconduct complaint with the OPMC.
Let the Governor know that this proposal would create unnecessary distrust in the physician-patient relationship and is unfair to physicians. Moreover, with nearly 10,000 complaints already made each year to OPMC (resulting in only a few hundred actual disciplinary actions), it is clear there is already strong public awareness of this oversight body.
The bill was delivered to Governor Cuomo’s desk which means he has until Wednesday, October 7 to sign it into law or veto.
