Dealing with the Disruptive Practitioner and Meeting the JCAHO Guidelines

Summary

Many times, the medical staff management simply condones the problem of the disruptive practitioner until it gets to a point where it can no longer be ignored.  However, if the steps outlined in this webinar are taken, there will be ample evidence that this is a continuing problem and the staff has made every effort to correct it without resorting to an adverse action.  This procedure also provides documentation that the medical executive committee took the adverse action based on a substantial factual basis and that its action was not arbitrary, unreasonable or capricious.

Overview

Most disciplinary policies are progressive.  A progressive policy applies increasingly more severe sanctions to additional incidents of bad behavior.   It is very important that organized medical staff have a disruptive practitioner policy.  This webinar will discuss the development of such a policy, including what it should include, and how it should be implemented.

It is also important to understand what constitutes disruptive behavior.  Disruptive behavior includes violent or verbally abusive activity, but it is not limited to such behavior. This webinar with review several actual examples of disruptive behavior that has been the subject of an action brought in court.
