dangerous doctors, the state has its own sort of government watch dog called the california medical board. but our past reporting revealed serious concerns about how california let some doctors off the hook. even when their errors might have hurt or even killed a patient. now we're revealing how you may be left in the dark even after your doctor is caught making a deadly mistake. of california's more than 110,000 doctors, 609 are on probation. their offenses include deadly medical errors, drug use, and sexual assault against patients. that information already gets posted to the medical board's website, but it's up to patients to find it. senator jerry hill is proposing legislation to require doctors to disclose their probation status directly to patients. top leadership at the medical board spoke out against the plan saying that would hard the
doctor/patient relationship. just last month, the medical board softened its stance, saying they support doctors disclosing their stance to patients but only for the most serious violations. the board continues to face criticism over how it disciplines doctors. it's supposed to work alongside the attorney general's office to investigate cases but those involved say the partnership is failing. later today, lawmakers are scheduled to debate legislation to restructure the investigative process to make sure dangerous doctors are prosecuted. they also require a proposal to require doctors to tell patients whenever they're placed on probation, but the final vote is likely months away. back to you. >> thank you very much. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call. 888-96-tips or send us an e-mail to the unit at nbcbayarea.com. >> some new fallout over the oroville dam crisis. the sacramento bee reporting former governor pat brown
