Our client, a medical professional, worked at a hospital where he was granted certain rights to practice, known as “privileges”. After a period of time, the hospital unilaterally changed those privileges without our client’s consent. Our client is challenging the hospital’s actions by having us file an appeal with the Hospital Appeal Board. Before considering our client’s appeal, the Board had to decide whether it had jurisdiction to hear the matter in the first place. The Board recently ruled in our client’s favour on this point, and found that a full hearing of the appeal is necessary to determine the scope of his privileges and whether the hospital was permitted to make the changes it did.
