Medical Staff Services Updates

The following update has been made to the Medical Staff Rules & Regulations to aide in decreasing delinquency rates: 

  1. If the operative report is not completed immediately after surgery, it will  be considered delinquent.  The surgeon will be notified, and if the report has not been completed by the 5th business day following discharge, the surgeon will be subject to suspension.

 The following update has been made to the Medical Staff Bylaws regarding the increase in Malpractice insurance:

The applicant shall maintain professional liability insurance coverage through an insurance carrier authorized by the Commonwealth of Virginia as a licensed provider of professional malpractice insurance, for the clinical privileges requested with per occurrence coverage that meets or exceeds the medical malpractice cap established by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and will increase as the law changes (the cap is $2,050,000 in 2012 and increase by $50,000 annually) and annual aggregate coverage that meets or exceeds three times the medical malpractice cap established by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and will increase as the law changes. 

**The full documents, Medical Staff Rules & Regulations and Medical Staff Bylaws can be located on the SRMC intranet under Departments, Medical Staff Services.
