In an interview conducted June 10, 2014, the physician stated "there were not enough
obstetrician gynecologists on the medical staff at the hospital to do the work" and he "was
on call as laborist 12-16 days per month." The CDPH reviewed the hospital's bylaws and found that the rules stated that "when practitioners plan to be unavailable to cover their patients' hospital needs, arrangements must be made with another hospital-privileged practitioner."
