PRIVILEGING REVISION OR RENEWAL REQUIREMENTS 1.The revision or renewal of a LIP’s privileges should occur at least every 2 years and should include primary source verification of expiring or expired credentials, a synopsis of peer review results for the 2 year period and/or any relevant performance improvement information. Similar to the initial granting of privileges, approval of subsequent privileges is vested in the governing board which may review recommendations from either the clinical director, or a joint recommendation of the medical staff (including the Clinical Director) and the Chief Executive Officer, or delegate this responsibility (via resolution or bylaws language) to be implemented according to approved policies and procedures (including methods to assess compliance with these policies and procedures).
