hiring rmDear director: I want to hire a former resident colleague of mine. But since we’ve been out of residency, he’s settled two lawsuits and had another quality investigation. My Medical Staff Office tells me I won’t be able to get him credentialed. He’s a great guy and was a fantastic doctor as a resident. Shouldn’t I be able to hire who I want?

performance reviews rmDear Director: It’s a new year and although I’ve been in my chairman job several years, I’ve never done any kind of evaluation on the docs in my group. I give them annual bonuses but have started to wonder if they need more feedback. Do chairman typically do annual evaluations on their docs? 

AQ Blizzard rmDear Director: During a recent snow storm I couldn’t get in for a shift and I caught a lot of grief from my medical director about it. What’s my responsibility and what should I do if it happens again?
