This paper discusses the Kadlec and Frigo cases and, more importantly, addresses in layperson’s terms the issues and problems which hospitals and medical staffs need to resolve when trying to meet their corporate negligence burden, particularly in this current health care environment. It also identifies a number of practical recommendations that hospitals should consider when attempting to both improve patient care services and ensure that all physicians on their medical staff are currently competent to exercise each of the clinical privileges given to them.
