Come May It’s a Brave New World For DOT Medical Examiners

This is a follow-up post about those cadets and their swift actions to prevent what could have been a disaster on I-95 back on February 9, 2014.  We will also now find out the outcome of the FMCSA investigation of the bus driver involved in this near-accident.  I really didn’t expect to follow-up on the post.  I was content to commend those cadets and to hope for the best outcome for the driver involved.  However, this story raised other issues with me regarding commercial driver medical examinations, specifically our liability as certified medical examiners.  I wonder if others out there are having similar thoughts or concerns.  I have already advised my insurance carrier that I perform these type of physical examinations.  Have you?
