Can a mistake lead to medical license revocation?

Dr. Mistake was a well-respected dermatologist who was liked by both his patients and his peers. It was a well-known fact that he had been through a difficult divorce, which he openly discussed with patients and peers. During one exam, a regular patient was certain that she was touched inappropriately. Dr. Mistake admitted that he had been inappropriate, apologized, and asked her to recognize the difficulties that his failed marriage had presented to him. Can he lose his medical license?
