multiple jeopardy

multiple jeopardy

A popular term for the repeated social and professional castigation to which a doctor is subjected despite having a single act of alleged negligence. Multiple jeopardy occurs each time a doctor applies to practice in another country, state or hospital, as the same questions related to the act are repeated, as are the hearings and sanctions, which creates delays in paperwork.
