Both the Utah House and Senate have approved a bill that bars negligent credentialing as a cause of action in medical malpractice suits.
SB 150 reverses a May 2010 Utah Supreme Court decision which allows plaintiffs to include hospitals in malpractice suits on the grounds that the hospital should not have given credentials to a practitioner with a past history of questionable actions. The majority of states still recognize negligent credentialing as a cause of action in malpractice suits.
