Medical Staff Services
The Facility Compliance Officer provides training to all new employees and participates in annual staff training as well. Quarterly updates are given to the Hospital Advisory Board. Monthly audits are conducted to ensure that our hospital is in compliance with Federal and State regulations pertaining to referrals, billing, medical necessity, fair treatment of employees and many other processes that directly affect the operation of our hospital.
The Medical Staff Office is the first line of defense in regard to patient safety. This takes place through the credentialing process. Each practitioner that applies through the medical staff process undergoes:
- Primary source verification of their education and training
- Query of the National Practitioner Data Bank
- Query of the sanctions databases for the Office of the Inspector General
- Verification of their affiliations from the point of latest education to the time they apply.
The process is intense and time consuming, but has proven itself over and over again in ensuring that competent, qualified practitioners are caring for our patients.
Hours available: 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 pm
