Medical Staffs: The need for continued community-based hospital care and the potential threat posed by the failure of governing and policymaking bodies to request, receive, and heed the advice and counsel of local medical staffs are causes for community and statewide concern. Medical staffs should foster cooperative and effective communication with their governing boards and should adopt bylaws that promote medical staff credentialing policies and procedures intended to assure a competent medical staff. Medical staffs should establish the capability to assist in resolution of conflicts between their members, hospital administration, and governing boards (Council on Socioeconomics, p 180, I-94; reaffirmed CHSO Rep. 2-A-05; reaffirmed CHSO Rep. 1-A-15).
