The HealthBlawger was quoted in a piece entitled "A graduated discipline policy can boost procedural compliance," which ran as the lead story in the April issue of Credentialing & Peer Review Legal Insider. Key thought from the article:
The most effectively managed hospitals develop a thoughtful system of graduated, meaningful discipline to respond to physician violations of the code of conduct or noncompliance with administrative procedures. A disciplinary structure that gains the support of the medical staff must be reasonably designed to accomplish the stated intention and should not lead to overly harsh consequences for an occasional lapse.
I offered some specifics to flesh this out. CPRLI is a publication of HCPro.
