Report raises concerns over effectiveness of CT scan medical advice
The state medical review board ranked 37th in the country for the annual rate of serious disciplinary action taken against doctors accused of wrongdoing from 2017 to 2019, according to a Public citizen report released earlier this year.
The Connecticut board averages about 13 serious disciplinary actions per year in 2017, 2018 and 2019, according to Public Citizen. Rankings were based on the number of serious disciplinary actions taken by states per 1,000 physicians. Connecticut’s rate was 0.65 per 1,000 physicians – Kentucky had the highest rate of serious disciplinary action at 2.29 per 1,000 physicians, according to the report. Public Citizen defines “serious disciplinary action” as one that has a clear effect on a physician’s ability to practice.
