Any person who wants to do their research and learn whether their Maryland doctor has discipline records can find this information at the Maryland Board of Physicians Practitioner Profile System.
Simply search for it in a search engine and you will be able to find the information you are seeking.
Now that you have discovered that your doctor has a discipline history, can you use that information to prove that your doctor in your instance committed medical malpractice on you?
The simple answer to the question is that in general you will not be able to use your doctor’s past discipline history as proof of medical malpractice in your case.
The reason the law is this way is because you have to prove what the doctor did to you fell below the standard of care in your situation.
A jury or fact finder is only looking at the evidence presented in your case, not what may or may not have happened in the past.
You have to be able to prove each element of your medical malpractice claim against your doctor with current evidence relevant to your case.
To learn more about whether you are the victim of medical malpractice in Maryland this is what we invite you to do.
