Lindsay Maleson represents academic medical centers, teaching hospitals, medical schools and hospital systems.
While I have broad-based experience advising hospital clients on many legal issues, my practice today focuses on the following major areas.
I counsel numerous hospital clients with respect to peer review, physician and resident discipline and reporting, compliance with Joint Commission standards and applicable law, drafting and updating medical staff bylaws and related issues. I also conduct medical staff hearings and appeals.
I represent teaching hospitals and medical schools with respect to attaining and maintaining ACGME and AOA accreditation of their graduate medical education (GME) programs. I handle appeals and reconsiderations, program information forms and institutional review documents, affiliation agreements, site visit preparation, institutional and residency program structure, duty hour compliance, policies, resident contracts, unique medico-legal or accreditation problems and litigation pertaining to GME. I am currently helping clients to prepare for the transition to ACGME’s Next Accreditation System and have presented on this topic.
I counsel clients with respect to consent and records issues, patient treatment matters and HIPAA compliance, with particular attention to the evolving digital health landscape. I advise clients with respect to HIPAA breaches, including representation before the Office for Civil Rights. I have presented on HIPAA breaches numerous times, most recently focusing on the changes brought about by the Omnibus Rule.
The gap between the demand for residency positions and the nation’s actual supply of residency slots is growing larger. We’re helping existing and prospective teaching hospitals identify opportunities for meeting the ever-increasing demand for residency training.
