“Hospitalsplaining”: the condescension problem in physician employment contracts
In this episode, we have Dennis Hursh, a physician contract lawyer, sharing his experiences in dealing with hospitals and their tendency to condescend towards physicians and their lawyers, also known as “hospitalsplaining.” He discusses a recent example where negotiations for call coverage in a physician employment agreement were met with resistance from the hospital’s representative, who cited the need for flexibility in a business. Dennis emphasizes the importance for physicians to be aware of situations where they are being talked down to and stand up for their rights to be treated with respect and professionalism.
Dennis Hursh is a veteran attorney with over 40 years of experience in health law. He is founder, Physician Agreements Health Law, which offers a fixed fee review of physician employment agreements to protect physicians in one of the biggest transactions of their careers. He can also be reached on Facebook and LinkedIn.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “Hospitalsplaining: a lawyer’s perspective on condescension in the medical field.”

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
