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 214.10.
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.
