Law 23-116 establishes time frames for a health professional employer to report action taken against a health professional to a board, commission, or authority and creates sanctions for failure to comply. It also requires a health professional to submit to a board, commission or authority responsible for licensing, registering, or certifying the health professional within 10 business days’ notice of a malpractice judgment, settlement, or that the health professional has been convicted of a crime. Among other things it requires the Health Occupations Boards to ensure that a practitioner or dispenser is registered with the prescription drug monitoring program before renewing, reactivating, or reinstating a license.
