If so, can I run some utility to scan the card and rule out sending data to bad blocks?

man badblocks

IIRC, SD cards have a limited number of write cycles.
Running a 'badblocks' test on a SD card will shorten it life.
However, if there are badblocks on a SD card, it may be likely that more badblocks will occur in the near future.
Typically, I use a spinning/magnetic HD for '/' and let the RPi boot from the SD card.
