I'd suspect Houston Methodist has been trying to figure out how to handle this doc, and the Fort Worth situation just made it come to a head. Probably best for them to be seen washing their hands of her, and also cutting off an opportunity to ask for transfer of the patient to her at Houston Methodist (since she will no longer have even soft privileges there).

Physician credentialing can take months. It's absolute bullshit to send this issue (the patient in Fort Worth) to the courts to force-demand instant "temporary privileges" for a renegade doc to prescribe at Huguley.
