New York Times columnist Pauline M. Chen says that while the discussions at disciplinary meetings and at morbidity and mortality conferences tend to focus on the effects of these physicians' errors on patients, there is rarely any time devoted to how such errors affect doctors and their subsequent interactions with patients. Doctors who are depressed are as much as two times more likely to make subsequent errors than doctors who are not, Chen says.
