Texas Peer Review Defense Lawyers
Hospital peer reviews can doubly affect the licensing privileges of a medical professional. First, a hospital peer review could result in disciplinary action against a doctor at his or her place of work. Secondly, when a hospital conducts an investigative review of a physician on its staff, the committee must report any negative findings to the Texas Medical Board. A negative review could prompt the licensing board to open its own investigation, which could have consequences that affect the physician’s licensure.

Defending Against a Peer Review
Each hospital has a set of by-laws that detail the standards and procedures to be followed at that hospital. In addition, the by-laws list any grounds for discipline that could lead to a physician’s practicing privileges being suspended or revoked. In addition to these procedural rules, there may be many complex laws involved in a peer review case that require the knowledge and experience of a medical license attorney.
