This story profiles four doctors who are frequently sued for malpractice. These doctors practiced surgery while on drugs, abandoned their patients and even left surgical tools inside patients, but they were all lightly disciplined and allowed to continue practicing. Burnett looked into possible means of alleviating the current insurance "crisis," such as harsher discipline for doctors who harm patients. But he found that state medical boards are often too understaffed, underfunded or too ineffectual to be effective monitors of the industry.
