We provide hospitals, healthcare institutions, medical executive committees, and medical staff associations with counsel on a broad range of medical staff matters.
Services include reviewing and revising medical staff by-laws, rules, and regulations for operational effectiveness and assessing them for compliance with regulatory and accreditation requirements.
Our team also offers counsel for medical staff investigations, impaired professionals, and corrective actions, as well as fair hearing and appellate review proceedings. We defend lawsuits filed by physicians and other licensed professionals against hospitals, their administrations, and medical staff leadership.
We also conduct compliance and regulatory reviews and provide counseling regarding credentialing, EMTALA, on-call obligations, and state and federal reporting of adverse actions and events. Additionally, we provide advice on quality improvement and utilization review matters as well as “root cause” analysis of sentinel events.
We advise physicians and professional clients on licensure matters, scope of practice issues and relationships with other professional and healthcare businesses.
