AMA Awareness of DOT Lawsuit

I have had hostile feelings against the AMA, because it does not represent the interests of the clinician. When it shows support for clinical care, I can forgive and forget. I have used their manual on the management of the impaired driver as an example of care. The association of DOT leaders has also supported discretionary reporting of drivers who have shown themselves to be impaired.

One must recall that Pennsylvania DOT requires the reporting of any patient at the time of a list of diagnoses, not after any evidence of impairment.
