Search Our Nurses Database by County
As part of our continuing investigation into the lax oversight of California nurses, we created a searchable database of the more than 2,000 registered nurses who have faced disciplinary action since 2002. We’ve updated the feature to allow users to find these nurses by county. (One limitation: The database, from Board of Registered Nursing records, lists the county of residence for a nurse, which may not be the location of the alleged misconduct.)
Since our story, produced in partnership with the Los Angeles Times, ran on Sunday, more than half of the nursing board has resigned or been removed; its longtime executive officer resigned Tuesday. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger cited the long delays it took for the board to act on complaints of misconduct as the impetus for cleaning out the agency. (Our analysis found that cases closed in 2008 took an average of three years and five months to investigate and discipline.) We will continue to follow the reform efforts; visit our series page to see our complete coverage.
