Malpractice

Malpractice claim information is compiled by the Oregon Medical Board from claim reports it receives from primary insurers; public bodies required to defend, save harmless and indemnify an officer, employee or agent of the public; a self-insured entity; or a health maintenance organization. Claim reporting and disclosure requirements are governed by ORS 742.400.

The settlement of a medical malpractice claim may occur for a variety of reasons that do not necessarily reflect negatively on the professional competence or conduct of the provider. Therefore, there may be no disciplinary action appearing for a licensee, even though there is a closed malpractice claim on file. A payment in the settlement of a medical malpractice action does not create a presumption that medical malpractice occurred. This database represents information from reporters to date. Please note: Not all reporters may have submitted claim information to the Board.
