The patient pledge urges legislators to use their power to center fairness for patients who have been harmed by medical negligence over insurance profits and corporate entities.
“I believe in every New Mexican’s right to access quality and safe healthcare and I support the protection of patients and New Mexico families.
I will honor HB75 (2021) -the legislation that patients worked to pass and doctors supported- that balances fairness to patients and accountability for multi-billion dollar corporations.
I pledge to use my office to center the wellbeing and justice for patients as I make decisions in the legislature. This includes leveraging my position, sponsoring bills and casting votes to protect patients and seeking fairness in remedies for families who have been wronged due to preventable medical negligence.”
