Retaliation Against Susan Meyer, M.D.

    In Meyer v. Sunrise Hospital, the Nevada Supreme Court held on May 15, 2001 that a hospital’s decision to terminate a physician based upon a single incident, regardless of the high quality of care the physician provided throughout the remainder of his career, was sufficient to protect the hospital under HCQIA’s immunity provisions.
