Illinois takes steps to stop doctors who sexually abuse patients
Rudy Bermudez was so upset when his fellow members on the Medical Board of California restored the license of a doctor convicted of sexually abusing a patient that when Bermudez was later elected to the state Assembly he penned legislation to revoke the license automatically of every doctor with a sex-crime conviction.
As Illinois policymakers begin crafting better ways to stop sexual misconduct by physicians in this state, Bermudez says they should consider his law, which has permanently stripped the licenses of sex-offending doctors across California.
