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 disastrous on the physician’s practice. The effects of this negative action can have long-term consequences. Possible reporting to the National Practitioner Data Bank or Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure is a very real consideration.
