TX physician bills raise concern about safety, motive

The Texas Tribune, April 6, 2011
Are Texas doctors hamstrung by unfounded complaints? Reps. Bill Zedler and Fred Brown think so. They've filed bills that would make it tougher for the state Division of Workers' Compensation and the Texas Medical Board to keep physicians off the job who are anonymously—and perhaps wrongly—accused of misconduct. But both seemingly doctor-friendly bills are opposed by the state's largest physician organization, which warns that, as written, they could jeopardize patient safety. And some healthcare observers have raised questions about the motivations of the key individuals backing the measures.
