481 Appendix D Granting Obstetric Privileges* Privileging defines what procedures a credentialed practitioner is permitted to perform at the facility. The granting of privileges is based on training, experi- ence, and demonstrated current clinical competence. The educational require- ments assume that applicants have achieved a doctor of medicine or doctor of osteopathy degree. Each staff member must be assessed at the time of initial application and on an ongoing basis. In addition to routine requests for privi- leges, a physician also may request privileges to perform a new technology. The granting of privileges at any level in obstetrics and gynecology is based on satisfaction of criteria for the specified procedures. Criteria for granting privileges must be applied consistently regardless of the applicant’s specialty. As new technologies evolve, processes for granting privileges for them will need to be formulated.

Hospitals using this material may adapt it to conform to the specific situations at these facilities. This information is not intended to be all inclusive or exclusive.
