nderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP’s representation of healthcare professionals and institutions is not limited to the courtroom. Our attorneys are experienced at navigating state and federal laws that affect healthcare professionals. Hospitals and doctors frequently call upon us to provide advice and opinions on a vast array of issues in an effort to avoid litigation or regulatory repercussions, such as:
- State Patient Privacy laws and regulation
- Human Research
- Religious Objections to Treatment
- Consent to Treatment
- Advance Directives
- Responses to State & Federal Administrative Subpoenas
- Privilege Under the Illinois Medical Studies Act
- Interaction With State & Federal Agencies
- Risk Management
- Quality Assurance
- Licensure Requirements and Limitations
- Scope of Practice
- Medical Documentation
- Record Keeping
Of course, this is not an exhaustive list of the matters on which we counsel healthcare clients on a daily basis. Although we are familiar with the Stark Law, we do not provide counseling in this very complex and highly specialized area.
Peer Review & Credentialing
Our attorneys also have extensive experience in conducting Peer Review and Staff Privileging hearings and investigations within hospitals and in resolving Staff Privileging disputes without resort to hearings. We have also defended lawsuits in both the federal and state courts arising out of Staff Privileging disputes.
For the benefit of our hospital clients, we have created a unique service called the “STATLAW Hotline©”. This service provides our clients the ability to access an attorney any time of day or night to address problems that arise emergently. For example, if police arrive after-hours demanding access to a patient, you can access an experienced attorney to help resolve the problem.
The attorneys of our Healthcare Counseling practice are also trial lawyers who have litigated many of the issues on which our clients seek advice. Therefore, we believe we provide an invaluable perspective to clients who wish to avoid litigation or be well-armed to prevail should litigation prove unavoidable.
