Dispute Resolution

Medical Staff Disputes

We have represented hospitals and their medical staffs in numerous disciplinary actions involving physicians who have provided deficient patient care or whose conduct in dealing with patients, their families, other staff or administrators warranted disciplinary action. We handle such disputes at every level, including initial investigations, medical executive committee meetings, internal administrative proceedings, governing board review and, where it cannot be avoided, litigation in the state and federal courts. Our team is familiar with National Practitioner Data Bank reporting requirements, as well as Health Care Quality Improvement Act (HCQIA) standards, and we can help clients structure settlements to minimize costs, maintain compliance and secure the immunities available under such legislation.
