Yes, not only can you report a provider for negligence, but it is our duty to do so per the Nursing Board in my state,(Oregon), as well as by the Medical Board in our state. I did this and the process did produce a ruling and and Board stipulated order that will hopefully ensure greater safety to patients. If we see it occurring (negligence), then we are complicit in not reporting. I was told that by law, the Board cannot name you unless the case goes to court if an individual dies. Prior to my decision to report this provider, I went to the provider first with my concerns, to the CEO of our clinic, to the partners (all providers) of our clinic, to my nursing manager. No one did anything and by "anything", I mean anything Because of this lack of action to protect patients by any of the individuals in the position of authority, I contacted the State Medical Board, asking them to investigate and if they felt there was cause for concern, I would leave it in their capable hands. They did, and in this case, the process worked, although the provider is still "practicing". i am hopeful, given a Board Order that will be monitoring the provider's patients, charts, mandated education for the provider and mentorship, that this provider's issues will resolve.
