We need to open the Practioner's Data Bank, ban secret settlements, and ban local docs from the medical board.

All docs need to be tested for drugs regularly, whether or not they have a record.

Probably all docs should be fingerprinted also.
Please google "George Reardon case file".

A solution would be national healthcare, with hospitals/doctors/nurses employed by the government. Malpractice would be handled quickly by impartial judges, and rewards would be standardized nationally. Settlements would be nonexistent, and only true malpractice awards would exist. A fixed price would be on each item, such as the wrong medication causing a side effect versus operating on the wrong side. Obviously small errors would be paid less. The system would be funded by the taxpayers. Doctors would not have to worry about malpractice insurance, and patients would get free basic care. Hopefully President Obama will be able to help the Americans improve their healthcare system.
