This morning, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution released an in-depth investigation of doctors who sexually abuse patients — and, in many cases, got away with it. (I contributed a few sidebars.) It makes for astonishing, sometimes sickening reading.

One Georgia doctor kept reinventing himself amid allegations that he abused patients – and kept on practicing.
“I’m absolutely speechless when it comes to how this doctor can keep going from place to place and having the same sorts of complaints made against him,” said Joyce Peters, a nurse who worked with (the Georgia doctor). “We’re not doing something right.”
