Poll: Managing good clinicians with behavioral problems

It can be challenging for medical staffs to address issues that don’t have clear, black and white answers. For example, how would your medical staff respond to a practitioner who has excellent clinical skills but exhibits disruptive behavior? What if your medical staff had worked hard to recruit a practitioner, only to find out shortly thereafter that he had relapsed into chemical dependency? Obviously there are some clear regulatory standards that must be followed in these instances, but there are also ethical issues and concerns that each medical staff must address individually.

Take our poll below and find out how your organization compares with your peers’ organizations.
