Areas of Practice

Medical Staff & Professional Rights

Our Health Care Practice Group has extensive experience advising hospitals on medical staff issues. We draft Medical Staff Bylaws, Rules and Regulations and other policies, counsel our clients in credentialing and retention issues including: recommend corrective actions for disruptive and impaired physicians, participate in peer review and fair hearing procedures, prevent negligent credentialing, negligent reference, or inappropriate economic credentialing claims, structure exclusive provider arrangements, and provide guidance on reporting to state licensing boards and the National Practitioner Data Bank. We have extensive experience structuring medical staff committees as peer review committees, and advising clients on confidentiality and discoverability of information used in peer review and quality review and patient safety activities. We have also represented physicians in their relationships with hospitals and in professional disciplinary actions with state licensing agencies.
