Hospital Medical Staff Privileges and Professional Liability: Membership on a hospital medical staff should be based primarily on standards of medical training, competency, and demonstrated ability. Some hospitals may be forced by their own insurance carriers to require that physicians carry minimum levels of coverage as a condition of medical staff membership. Hospitals should consider the reasonableness of such requirements and the effect of the imposed requirements on individual physicians (Council on Health Facilities, p 72, A-91; reaffirmed CHSO Rep. 1-A-01; reaffirmed CHSO Rep. 2-A-11).
