Responsibilities of Medical Centers in Credentialing Physicians

Doctors are not allowed to treat patients at hospitals, surgery centers and other health care facilities in Washington and Oregon unless they demonstrate their competency through credentialing. Sometimes doctors lose their right to practice medicine for disciplinary reasons, malpractice or lack of continuing education. If a hospital allows a doctor without proper credentials to continue to treat patients at the facility, it may be liable.

If you suffered an injury from an uncredentialed medical provider, you may be entitled to compensation for damages such as pain and suffering, economic losses and disability. Our lawyers have the experience to investigate your care to determine whether you have a strong case for recovering compensation from the medical facility.
