Oversight of DE doctors improves

delawareonline, July 11, 2011
In the wake of the failure of medical and law-enforcement officials to stop pediatrician Earl B. Bradley from sexually abusing girls he treated, lawmakers last year enacted a slew of laws aimed at cracking down on incompetent doctors and those who fail to report wrongdoing. Many wondered whether those reforms would make a difference. The early answer is that disciplinary actions against Delaware doctors have increased dramatically since the first revelations in January 2010 that Bradley had raped or molested more than 100 child patients and that complaints over a 15-year period about his inappropriate touching of girls never led to discipline or his arrest.
