Negligent Credentialing

From the Illinois Health & Hospital Association:

The Illinois Supreme Court recently ruled in Klaine v. Southern Illinois Hospital Services that medical staff applications are discoverable in cases involving negligent credentialing allegations.  The best way for hospitals to avoid such disclosure is to avoid negligent credentialing exposure. Accordingly, IHA and the Illinois State Medical Society have collaborated to publish Negligent Credentialing—What It is and How to Avoid It.  We urge members to review this publication with an eye toward improving the medical staff credentialing processes and practices throughout Illinois.
