How often do docs review med lists on rounds?

Not as often as they should according to this study in BMC Clinical Pharmacology:

The physicians did not review medication charts on all ward rounds and there was considerable variation in how often they did this. There is some evidence that the frequency with which charts are reviewed decreases as the number of patients seen increases. More efforts should be made to encourage regular review of medication charts.
