Hospitals and their medical staff have a unique relationship, and with that comes challenges. Our healthcare licensure defense team advises hospitals, healthcare institutions, medical executive committees, and medical staff associations on a range of medical staff and professional healthcare licensing matters.
Nixon Peabody can partner with you to navigate the complexity of the hospital and medical staff relationship. With our extensive experience in healthcare accreditation, we focus on reviewing and revising medical staff by-laws, rules, and regulations as well as assessing them for compliance with regulatory and accreditation requirements. We handle a range of issues, including medical staff investigations, impaired professionals, and corrective actions. Our experienced healthcare licensure defense attorneys provide guidance on fair hearing and appellate review proceedings, as well as defend against lawsuits filed by physicians and other licensed professionals against hospitals, their administrations, and medical staff leadership. With profound knowledge of accreditation in healthcare, we are where you need us to be, at the forefront of the industry, understanding—and mitigating—any potential risk you face.
