The laws governing the relationship between doctors and hospitals are known as medical staff bylaws. These bylaws allow for credentialing processes to be taken to determine whether or not a doctor is granted medical staff privileges at a particular hospital or healthcare center. There are also times that peer review committees will look at actions taken by a specific doctor and determine that doctor’s fitness to continue his or her career as a physician at their hospital.
If you believe that a hospital is considering credentialing actions against you, do not hesitate to contact an attorney who is well-versed in the credentialing and peer review processes. At Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Littky-Rubin & Whitman, our hospital credential lawyers in West Palm Beach can provide sound legal advice and exceptional representation.
