Legislators are renewing their scrutiny of medical boards in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas and other states.
New figures from state medical boards show that disciplinary actions against physicians jumped 20% between 2003 and 2004. Board officials attribute much of the increase to medical boards' beefed-up efforts to crack down on bad doctoring.
But legislators say the figures do not mean that every medical board is doing a good job of regulating and disciplining errant physicians. Doctors and others say there's always room for improvement.
