Product ID: 500272
This statement, however, should not be misconstrued. This does not mean that the hospital is liable for all acts of negligence or malpractice by a physician who practices at the hospital. It does mean that the hospital must take reasonable steps: 1) to select a competent medical staff, 2) to ensure that the individual physician on it staff performs only procedures for which he or she is qualified, and 3) to implement certain quality control measures to verify that only qualified practitioners remain on the staff and that quality care is provided in the institution.

In this webinar, we will review the historical relationship between the physician and the hospital and, to see this relationship in the proper context, the roles each plays under the "corporate responsibility doctrine." We will next review the development of negligent credentialing and examine what actions should be taken to preclude liability for failure to properly credential practitioners.

Why Should you Attend:
In a medical malpractice action, the plaintiff is looking for the defendant with deepest pocket for recovery. There is little question that hospitals have the deepest pocket. You should attend this program to learn how negligent credentialing develops and learn strategies to defend against it.

Objectives of the Presentation:
To provide the attendee with an understanding of the peer review process, the hospital’s responsibilities, and how to prevent negligent credentialing. The basic objective, however, is to provide a plan to preclude liability for failure to properly credential practitioners.

Who can Benefit:
  • Hospital executives
  • Medical staff officers
  • Physicians who serve on peer review committees
  • Medical staff support staff, and
  • Attorneys representing medical staffs
