California disciplined fewer doctors in 2007
Los Angeles Times, April 23, 2008
The new report from nonprofit consumer advocacy group Public Citizen ranks California 36th in the nation in disciplinary actions against doctors, which include the revocation, surrender and suspension of medical licenses. The previous year, California ranked 27th in the nation. The data show that physicians who might have been properly disciplined a few years ago may escape scrutiny today, according to the report's authors.
