Proposed law could make it easier to discipline doctors in CT

In a previous post, we discussed how Connecticut's Medical Examining Board was not as aggressive in taking reciprocal disciplinary actions against doctors who had been disciplined for misconduct in other states as the medical board's of neighboring states.

This could potentially expose patients in Connecticut to great harm.
