State Reps. Beth Liston (D-Dublin) and Allison Russo (D-Upper Arlington) today introduced a bill to protect health providers and patients across Ohio.


“Government shouldn’t force healthcare providers to lie to their patients,” said Dr. Liston. “People should be able to trust their doctors and nurses to give them accurate and complete information.”


This bill, known as the “Clinician Integrity and Medical Accuracy Act,” would prevent the state from requiring clinicians to provide patients with medically inaccurate information and services in a manner that is not evidence-based and appropriate for the patient. Additionally, the Act prohibits the state from preventing clinicians from providing patients with medically accurate evidence-based information or medical services.


“Doctors take an oath to treat patients to the best of their ability, with knowledge rooted in clinical experience and scientific consensus,” said Rep. Russo. “Politicians are not doctors, and we put patient well-being and safety at risk when we intrude into the realm of medical care without any regard for accuracy, peer-reviewed evidence, and accepted clinical practice.”


The Act does not change the standard of care for health care providers.
