X. TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF AUTHORIZATION TO PRACTICE: An MLP shall be assigned to the clinical and/or hospital department appropriate to his/her professional training and authorized scope of privileges. The MLP is subject to periodic competency assessment and disciplinary actions as deemed appropriate. MLPs and their supervising physicians are subject to review as part of the organization's peer review and performance improvement activities. An MLP's authorized scope of privileges within any clinical department/section is subject to the rules and regulations of that department/section and to the authority of the chairman/chief and the department director. When a supervising physician is unable or unavailable to be the principal medical decision maker, another licensed physician must be designated to assume temporary supervisory responsibilities with respect to the MLP. For periods of one month or less, the supervising physician may designate a temporary replacement. For periods longer than one month, the MLP and supervising

7 7 of 8 physician must notify the Chief Nursing Executive, the appropriate department chair/chief and the MSA Office of the need to replace the supervising physician. If no temporary or replacement supervising physician is available, authorization to practice as an MLP automatically terminates. If employment (by NMH or physician) is terminated, authorization to practice as an MLP automatically terminates. If the supervising physician terminates medical staff membership, refuses to renew or terminates a supervision document, authorization to practice as an MLP automatically terminates. If the MLP is employed by another NM affiliated organization or physician, authorization to practice is suspended pending update of scope of privileges, supervising physician acknowledgement statement, and professional liability insurance. Suspension shall not exceed thirty (30) days. If the supervising physician's approval to supervise the MLP is revoked, limited, or otherwise altered by action of the IDFPR, authorization to practice as an MLP is automatically revoked, limited or otherwise altered. If the MLP is suspended from Medicare, Medicaid or any other government funded program, an automatic suspension of privileges shall result and shall continue until satisfactory evidence of the completion of such suspension is received. If the MLP is finally excluded and terminated from Medicare, Medicaid or any other government funded program, there is an automatic termination of all privileges. XI. CORRECTIVE ACTION AND FAIR HEARING: Either the CNE or VPMA may impose a suspension of the practice of an MLP at any time it is deemed in the best interest of patient care and of the hospital. The physician-employed MLP and supervising physician may request a review by the MLPC. The MLPC may require the submission of additional information from any relevant source. The MLP and supervising physician are informed of the general nature and circumstances giving rise to the review. The MLP and supervising physician will be granted the opportunity to discuss the situation with the MLPC who shall make a recommendation to the CNE and VPMA. Thereafter a final ruling will be made by the CNE and VPMA. A hospital-employed MLP will follow the hospital grievance process. Nothing contained in this policy or the medical staff organizational documents shall be interpreted to entitle a mid-level provider to the procedural rights set forth in the medical staff organizational documents. XII. MID-LEVEL PROVIDER COMMITTEE: 1. Structure: The MLPC is appointed by the CNE who shall serve as the committee chairperson. Committee membership shall include at least one physician from the medical staff Credentials Committee who shall be appointed by the COS, a certified nurse practitioner, a certified nurse midwife, a certified clinical nurse specialist, a certified registered nurse anesthetist and a certified physician assistant. 2. Function: The MLPC reviews and renders recommendations regarding credentials files referred to it by the CNE and VPMA.
