Change to Bylaws of the Medical Staff

Wednesday, October 03, 2012 at 2:53:57 PM

As a result of the DOH survey, provisions for medical records are being moved from the Medical Staff Rules and Regulations to the Bylaws. There is no change in the content or meaning. H&Ps are to be performed and documented within 24 hours after admission or up to 30 days prior and updated within 24 hours of admission, but prior to surgery or procedure requiring anesthesia. The H&P must be performed by an appropriately credentialed practitioner. Final approval of this change is pending the General Medical Staff vote on October 15.
