Threatened With Revocation Of Medical Staff Privileges?

Medical staff privileges at hospitals and other health care facilities, for many physicians, are essential for treating patients. In the event these privileges are threatened with revocation or even suspended, the impact can be ravenous on the physician's practice. The effects of negative action can have long-term consequences. Possible reporting to the National Practitioner Data Bank and/or Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure is a very real consideration. At the Louisville and Lexington law firm of The Strause Law Group, PLLC, our lawyers represent physician's medical staff privileges in the following areas:

  • Suspensions or revocations
  • Peer review issues
  • Reporting – National Practitioner Data Bank matters
  • Fair hearings
  • Disruptive physician issues
  • Incident reports

Understanding the hospital bylaws and the process governing the physician's ability to challenge a negative recommendation on medical staff privileges are essential to a just resolution. It is not only fundamental to understand the hospital or facility rules, but also to investigate and analyze the relevant facts and their relation to the medical staff privileges. Upon a thorough analysis, skilled negotiations may facilitate a resolution that the physician and hospital find to be in the respective parties' best interests.

However, when settlement is not an option for our client, we welcome the opportunity to vigorously advocate for our client's interest (medical staff privileges) at a fair hearing, state court, or federal court. It is abundantly clear from our respective cases that The Strause Law Group, PLLC, is not hesitant to take on challenging opponents or cases.
