Board News and Policies > Pending Investigations/Settlements 4/9/04
The Board of Medicine has received a letter from a New Hampshire hospital expressing concern about a physician who was applying for privileges. This physician's license was under investigation and subsequently suspended in New Hampshire. The Board is legally prohibited from divulging information on pending settlements or investigations. The Board suggests that all hospitals and licensed insurance companies incorporate a question on their application for privileges/membership which requires the physician to give information on pending investigations.
