Texas medical board plans to fingerprint doctors

This will include new applicants and currently licensed physicians. KTVT channel 11, Dallas, Fort Worth reports:

The call for mandatory background checks comes in the wake of a CBS 11 investigation which uncovered that a registered sex offender was honored by the Texas Legislature as their “Doctor of the Day” twice over the past two years.

Given the flood of applications to practice in Texas following tort reform, this will be quite a task.

Visiting from Respectful Insolence...

Andy Wakefield, the violator of the Oath of Hippocrates, is currently malpracticing at Thoughtful House in Texas without the benefit of a licence to practice medicine, or whatever he calls it.

I wonder what they will find when they fingerprint him.
