Scope and Content Note

This series consists of case files of the New York State Department of Health's Bureau of Adjudication. Adjudication cases can involve sanitary code conditions, Medicaid, professional medical conduct, nursing home discharges/transfers, emergency medical services, WIC benefits, and patient abuse. Adjudication case files include hearing transcripts, motions, intermediate rulings, proposed findings and exceptions, and orders rendered. Additionally, this series contains index files that include summary of proceedings, findings of fact, and occasional transcripts for every case that is heard by the judges. These files are created in compliance with State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA), Article 3, Section 307, which requires agencies to maintain an index to administrative hearings.
