Louisiana Health System May Face Class Action Lawsuit on Negligent Credentialing

A Louisiana judge has ruled that a case filed by five former patients against Willis-Knighton Health System can move forward. The plaintiffs allege that the health system failed to properly credential neurosurgeon Dr. Ravish Patawardhan. They also claim that after Dr. Patawardhan was given privileges, the health system failed to investigate concerns raised by nurses regarding his surgical skills.

No hearing date has been scheduled.
