(KMOV)-- The state of Illinois is cracking down and taking away licenses from doctors and nurses.

In one instance, Richard Barcum, a nurse from Wood River was indefinitely suspended for a minimum of three years after being disciplined by the Board of Nursing of the State of Missouri for physically and verbally abusing a patient.

This came after the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations recently issued its report on disciplinary actions taken during January.
