New York Senator wants stronger hospital oversight board
NewsDay, April 17, 2008
New York State Sen. Kenneth LaValle said he plans to reintroduce legislation by to put "more teeth" into Stony Brook University Medical Center's oversight board. The oversight board was not informed until recently of a case in which diseased organs were transplanted from a 15-year-old Sag Harbor boy. LaValle also wants to introduce a bill to ensure that transplant doctors statewide are following best practices.
