  1. Physicians disciplined for sex-related offenses.

    Article - En anglais

    Context. - Physicians who abuse their patients sexually cause immense harm, and, therefore, the discipline of physicians who commit any sex-related offenses is an important public health issue that should be examined.

    Objectives

    - To determine the frequency and severity of discipline against physicians who commit sex-related offenses and to describe the characteristics of these physicians.

    Design and Setting

    - Analysis of sex-related orders from a national database of disciplinary orders taken by state medical boards and federal agencies.

    Subjects

    - A total of 761 physicians disciplined for sex-related offenses from 1981 through 1996.

    Main Outcome Measures

    - Rate and severity of discipline over time for sex-related offenses and specialty, age, and board certification status of disciplined physicians.

    Results

    - The number of physicians disciplined per year for sex-related offenses increased from 42 in 1989 to 147 in 1996, and the proportion of all disciplinary orders that were sex related increased from 2.1% in 1989 to 4.4% in 1996 (P<. 001 for trend).

    Discipline for sex-related offenses was significantly more severe (P<. 001) than for non-sex-related offenses, with 71.9% of sex-related orders involving revocation, surrender, or suspension of medical license.

    Of 761 physicians disciplined, the offenses committed by 567 (75%) involved patients, including sexual intercourse, rape, sexual molestation, and sexual favors for drugs. (...)
