State Medical Boards' Disciplinary Actions

Medical errors are responsible for the deaths of 98,000 Americans each year. Patients trust their doctors to act responsibly and they trust state medical boards to hold their doctor accountable if they can’t maintain accepted standards of competence.

Thus, part of Public Citizen’s approach to enhancing patient safety is pushing states to better protect patients from doctors who are practicing medicine in a substandard manner.
