About The Event

Fair Hearings from A Hearing Officer's Perspective

 
 
This training will prepare hearing officer for corrective actions and how to prepare for the hearing. It will cover application process for new applicants which include prior practice, references, prior adverse actions and liability settlements. Attendees will learn elements of good, clear and concise bylaws, fair hearing plans and other policies.

Why Should You Attend:

It sometimes becomes necessary for the medical staff to recommend to the governing board that the medical privileges of a practitioner either be removed or denied. Before such an adverse action is taken, it is very important that the practitioner is afforded due process. That requires planning. It is extremely important to have set the stage properly.

This session will provide the perspective of a hearing officer as to what actions should and must be taken before a corrective action is taken and how to prepare for the hearing. Specifically, actions that should be taken and should not be taken will be discussed.

The webinar will discuss the application process, particularly for new applicants. In this regard, we will discuss the criteria, reviewing what information is required to support the application with regard to education and training, prior practice, references and prior adverse actions and liability settlements. We will also discuss what information should be solicited from other hospitals where the applicant claims to have privileges. It is important that the information solicited be specific, leaving no room for gaps.

We will discuss the elements of good, clear and concise bylaws, fair hearing plans and other policies. The importance of not only having these documents but following them to the letter will be emphasized. Too often, organizations fail to follow their own procedures, leading to sometimes catastrophic circumstances. There is no excuse for failing to provide the affected practitioner due process because clear directions were not followed.

  • Clear and concise bylaws, policies and other directives
