About Our Physician and Nurse Practice
The summary suspension and revocation of the privileges of a physician or a nurse are potential career-ending actions. As soon as a physician or nurse is notified of any allegation or investigation about their standard of care, the physician or nurse should immediately contact an attorney. Our attorneys at Fondungallah & Kigham LLC will work with you to review the allegations; make sure you are provided the information and facts of what is being alleged. We will accompany you to the meetings of the Clinical Executive Committee (CEC) and we will defend you before the chief executive of your hospital. We are proud of the outcomes we have achieved for our physician and nurse clients.
Facing Revocation of your Medical Privileges at a VA Hospital?
Your medical license is not worth a resignation and $5,000. There is more to the allegations about your standard of care in the proposal to revoke your privileges. Our attorneys at Fondungallah & Kigham LLC will work with you to review the allegations; make sure you are provided the information and facts of what is being alleged, and vigorously defend you. We will accompany you to the meetings of the Executive committee for the medical staff (ECOMS) and we will defend you before the director of your hospital. We are proud of the outcomes we have achieved for our physician clients at VA hospitals across the country. We have been successful in getting physicians to return to work and their privileges reinstated.
