The Medical Record Committee and the Medical Staff Executive Committee have revised the physician suspension policy for delinquent operative notes. Physicians with operative notes remaining undictated beyond 30 days from the procedure will have their operating privileges suspended. Suspension will be in effect at 12 noon on the day of the suspension. Any cases booked two business days or more in advance will be cancelled and any OR blocks reserved for that particular physician will be released immediately. Suspension will remain in effect until such time that delinquent operative notes are dictated. OR blocks that have been released will not be reassigned to the suspended physician.
