Illinois Loss of Hospital Privileges Defense Lawyer

Attorney Defending Physicians in Hospital Peer Reviews and Fair Hearings Throughout the U.S.

It is not uncommon for a physician to be accused of inappropriate behavior, impairment, or error by hospital co-workers or patients--especially in these highly-charged times when sensitivities run high and anyone's behavior can be recorded and publicized all too easily. Even if such accusations later prove to be unfounded or exaggerated, a physician could be summarily suspended by a hospital or subjected to a peer review process. A denial, restriction, suspension, or revocation of medical staff membership or clinical staff privileges can be devastating to both your reputation and your finances. It could even lead to a review of your medical license by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR).

At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Bogdan, Inc. we stand ready to defend your hospital privileges. We fully understand the importance of hospital staff memberships and clinical staff privileges to your medical practice.

Dr. Bogdan holds professional doctorates in both pharmacy and law and has been a practicing attorney for over 16 years. He provides complete representation for healthcare professionals, helping them resolve issues with hospital privileges and providing experienced legal counsel to help them achieve favorable outcomes in other matters that may afect their medical licenses, their practice, and their career.

As a former prosecutor with the IDFPR, attorney Bogdan has experience with the full range of issues that can lead to an adverse decision on hospital privileges. He understands how stressful these situations can be, and he treats each client with the utmost respect and compassion.

Illinois Physicians Are Entitled to a Fair Hearing

Hospital privileges are essential to the practice of many medical specialties and are often an important source of patients and referrals. In addition, the interests of Illinois citizens are best served when they have greater choice in healthcare providers and when decisions about hospital credentialing are based on transparent criteria.

Therefore, Illinois law (210 ILCS 85/10.4) regulates the procedures that hospitals must follow when making decisions about medical staff membership and clinical staff privileges. The law includes several specific protections for doctors including these:

  • Each hospital's medical staff bylaws must define the procedures and criteria for making decisions about hospital staff privileges.
  • Applicants and existing staff members must be given written notice of any adverse decision with an explanation of the reason(s) for the decision.
  • Current medical staff has the right to a fair hearing on an adverse decision and the right to have legal counsel present at such hearings.

Your medical practice may not survive a loss of hospital privileges. With so much at risk, seek guidance from a skilled medical staff privileges defense attorney.
