    What puzzles me is that so many med schools let bungling would-be-doctors pass without having the necessary personal qualifications. This must be because they can do so with complete impunity; I haven’t heard of a single case ever, neither in my country or yours, where a medical school has been held to account for letting a sub par doc loose on the population. There are so many legal scholars on this blog, can’t one of them give me a short explanation as to why? I mean, if the car factory produces defective cars, they’re in trouble, right?

    Samson,

    I dont understand. You think the med school is at fault here? No way. The florida medical board is at fault. She probably graduated med school 30 years ago, and did everything required to pass her courses and licensing exams.

    Florida should strip her medical license permanently. She’s obviously a total bonehead not worthy of the profession.

    But of course you know what happens next. She just moves to another state and opens up practice again. State medical boards never talk to each other. Its possible to have your license revoked in 49 states and still get another license in the 50th state. They wont even make a simple phone call to find out what your past is. Absolutely ridiculous

    What a bunch of crap. Have you even looked up your state licensing board to see how it works? No. It is easier to just spout off a bunch of lies and half-truths. Ignorance is bliss eh.

    I see your point, Sir. What I was referring to, was not really her skills and knowledge, maybe they were great when she graduated, but nevertheless operating on the wrong hand three times points more to a personality defect (in casu sloppiness) than to a knowledge or skill deficit. She still could be a useful and productive citizen, there are hundreds of jobs where you can be sloppy without anybody caring (politician, lawyer, journalist) or it might even be a bonus (grade school teacher, stand-up comedian, bartender); but my point is that this character deficit ought to have been identifiable when she was a me student, and could be dealt with accordingly, could have saved her as well as her patients a lot of trouble.

    (sorry about the delay, but I’m on a different time zone here)

    We can have these doctors practice at the Federal Prisons especially at the maximum security so if they screw up, it’s no big deal.

    What is “absolutely ridiculous” is you don’t know what you are talking about.

    Samson,

    It’s become painfully evident that you’ve never done much of anything in the United States. Your understanding of any career beyond medicine is sorely lacking.

    That’s actually a great job, better than dealing with schmucks like you in the community. If you work for the feds, whether it be in a federal pen of the VA, your malpractice is covered by the deep pockets of the US government and the sodomites can’t really go after your personal assets.

    Just reviewed my boards recent actions (this month) one included censuring a doc for his activity in CANADA (he also had a license in my state). Once again showing you have NO CLUE AS TO WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.
