Go Read a Great Post

This article on a credentialling nightmare at Cut to Cure is a must read for all physicians who sit on peer review committees, credentials committees, and even those academic physicians who are in charge of passing residents through the educational system. It documents a series of system failures, that ultimately resulted in the apparent failure of appropriate patient care. In our profession, "buyer beware" is not good enough. Red State Moron has a few good thoughts on this as well.
