California Doctors Still Practice Medicine Even After Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

In most cases involving doctors that have committed medical malpractice or caused the wrongful death of patients in California, the doctor is put on probation and required to take additional medical classes. During this probation time, however, the doctor is allowed to continue treating patients and these patients are unaware of the crimes the doctor has committed.

In some of these cases, the doctors treat hundreds of patients as more and more disciplinary actions are given to the doctor for repeated negligence. The Medical Board of California does not take more drastic measures to discipline these doctors nor does the Board revoke their medical licenses because the doctors have a legal right to retain their medical licenses. Depriving these doctors of their licenses can get into constitutional issues, according to the Medical Board of California.

All doctors who have committed any type of medical malpractice or have caused the wrongful death of a patient should be held liable and this information should be made public for all current and future patients to see.
