The Complete Medical Staff, Peer Review, and Hearing Guidebook reflects an experienced and practical approach that can be honed only through many years of practice. The authors and their predecessors have refined their approach to this critical subject over the course of eleven previous editions of three longstanding AHLA titles: The Medical Staff Guidebook, Peer Review Guidebook, and Peer Review Hearing Guidebook.

In this conveniently combined work, readers will find a concise and comprehensive discussion of issues commonly faced by attorneys and others working in and around the interdependent relationship of a health care entity and its medical staff. The authors examine this complex relationship from both practical and legal perspectives. From application to separation, this work provides analysis, cautions, recommendations, and examples of provisions for bylaws and associated documents.

Also included in this title are these valuable downloadable Appendices, which provide important information in a succinct, time-saving format for busy attorneys and medical practitioners:

  • Health Care Quality Improvement Act Cases
  • Keystones of A Peer Review Investigation
  • Sample Fair Hearing and Appellate Review Plan

  • Letter to Practitioner Regarding Adverse Recommendation and Right to Hearing
  • Letter to Practitioner Regarding Hearing Date and Hearing Rights
  • Hearing Officer Checklist
  • Outline for Hearing Committee Report
  • Sample Index for Medical Staff Hearing Exhibit Book
