153.23 DISCIPLINARY INVESTIGATION.
Subdivision 1. Malpractice complaints.
Whenever the files maintained by the board show
that a podiatric medical malpractice settlement or award to the plaintiff has been made against a
podiatrist as reported by insurers, the executive director may initiate a complaint under section
Subd. 2. Access to hospital records.
The board has access to hospital and medical records
of a patient treated by the podiatrist under review if the patient signs a written consent permitting
that access. If no consent form has been signed, the hospital or podiatrist shall first delete data in
the record that identifies the patient before providing it to the board.
