Adverse Action Reports Case In Texas
In determining whether an adverse action report is true, we examine only whether the report accurately reflects the reasons for the adverse action, not whether the reasons themselves were accurate or true. See Davis v. Methodist Hosp., 997 S.W.2d 788, 794 n.3 (Tex. App.-Houston [1st Dist.] 1999, pet. denied).
Adverse action reports are intended to inform others who may become associated with the subject physician of conclusions reached and decisions made as a result of peer review proceedings.
The reports are not intended to validate or justify those decisions and conclusions, nor do they purport to legitimize the peer review process that may have been used.
The report merely states the actions and opinions of the makers of the report.
