What’s New in Health Law
CMS Rule on COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate Upheld by SCOTUS
The Supreme Court of the United States permitted the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) to move forward with its final rule implementing a COVID-19 vaccination mandate for hospital, and other healthcare facility staff. The Supreme Court’s opinion removed the major legal barrier preventing CMS from enforcing a vaccination mandate in participating hospitals across the country.

Question of the Week
Our hospital has granted clinical privileges to practitioners who work primarily in outpatient facilities which are a part of the same health system as the hospital. How do we conduct FPPE to confirm competence and OPPE for these practitioners when they have limited to no volume in the hospital, but the hospital wants them to retain their privileges in case it needs them to provide patient care services?
