Take steps to prevent disruptive behavior from erupting in your facility.
Studies have confirmed that physicians disciplined by state medical boards are the same physicians who, as students, were misbehaving in medical school and residency. These troubled doctors are known to have higher rates of medical error and malpractice, which result in lawsuits, fines, and penalties for your institution. Residents and administrators must confront disruptive resident behavior and prevent the complications that can ensue before it's too late.
