Hospitals typically organize committees, comprised of physicians and other direct care providers, to present and evaluate cases resulting in poor outcomes in order to enhance future patient care. Legislation governing these “peer review” committees can be found in the New Jersey Patient Safety Act (“PSA”), N.J.S.A. 26:2H-12.23, et seq. The PSA requires licensed health care facilities, including hospitals, to develop patient safety plans to improve patient care.
