The Osteopathic Medicine Board is responsible for adopting and enforcing regulations necessary to enable it to carry out its duties as prescribed under the Nevada laws, including but not limited to regulations which establish the principles of medical ethics to be used as the basis for determining whether conduct which does not constitute malpractice is unethical.
Additionally, the Board keeps a record of its proceedings relating to licensing and disciplinary actions. The Board or any investigative committee of the Board may issue to the person a letter of warning, a letter of concern or a non-punitive admonishment at any time before the Board initiates any disciplinary proceedings against the person. Unless otherwise noted, all the records are open to public inspection at all reasonable times of every osteopathic physician and every physician assistant.
