Medical staffs and hospitals have historically had a unique relationship of interdependence. At the heart of this relationship are the medical staff bylaws. This practice guide provides an excellent framework for drafting bylaws that will establish an appropriate legal and professional relationship between the medical staff and the healthcare entity.

The authors provide:

  • An overview of basic statutory, regulatory, and accreditation matters;
  • Identification and discussion of underlying legal and business issues that will impact the drafting of appropriate bylaws;
  • Guidance for incorporating The Joint Commission's changes to MS.01.01.01;
  • Organizational and drafting tips, as well as suggested language that should be included in key provisions of the bylaws; and
  • Discussion of the nature of medical staff appointment, procedures for determining clinical privileges, and fair hearing procedures.
