Dangers of the ED
By Dana Spector, Associate Managing Editor, AHC Media
After the recent tragic shooting in Orlando, FL, and the reality that such events are likely to remain looming threats, it's important now more than ever to properly train staff, to recognize hazards and other treatment blind spots, and to protect your hospital and EDs against potential liabilities. This pair of AHC Media webinars will help you do just that.
"The ED: Legal and Risk Management Issues", our expert educate attendees on the legal and risk management issues facing healthcare providers while they care for patients in a high-risk environment. You'll learn not only how to cope with and prevent hazardous situations but also how to comply with selected CMS hospital CoPs and Joint Commission standards that are problematic for ED staff
"Advancing Patient Safety in the ED: Risks, Challenges and Corrective Initiatives", we discuss the 2016 top 10 patient safety concerns for healthcare facilities as determined by the ECRI Institute. Additionally, we examine TJC patient flow standards and TJC's tracer, along with ACEP and ENA recommendations for reducing boarding and overcrowding.
In light of recent events, AHC is dedicated to keeping up with the latest developments in gun safety and how the healthcare industry is preparing for the next event.
