Dr. Sundar Natarajan, a hospitalist at St. Joseph’s Medical Center of Stockton (a Dignity facility), had difficulty completing timely medical records. When the problems persisted despite a warning by the medical executive committee, a committee was assigned to investigate. The investigatory committee confirmed Dr. Natarajan’s record keeping problems, identified additional problems regarding untimely responses while on call and the length of patients’ stays, and recommended that that the medical executive committee revoke Dr. Natarajan’s medical staff privileges. The executive committee adopted that recommendation and Dr. Natarajan appealed to the hospital’s peer review committee.
