Description

The Law Journal examined a complete archive of the state Board of Medical Examiners (30 years of data) and found out that even when doctors killed their patients, the state allowed them to continue practicing. The journal concentrated on repeated malpractice in order to eliminate "good doctors who made a mistake". The project found 290 repeat offenders, 200 of whom were allowed to go back to medicine.
