Obstructive Sleep Apnea and the Perioperative Period Webinar By MentorHealth
5/13/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: The webinar focuses on the patient safety issues in patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA undergoing surgery. We'll help you understand the risk factors for OSA and use appropriate screening tools can help identify undiagnosed cases.

Determining which patients and procedures can be safely managed in ambulatory settings vs. inpatient settings will be discussed. Anesthesia and intra-operative considerations will also be discussed. But most important will be the discussion on monitoring of OSA patients in the postoperative period. Monitoring OSA patients with pulse oximetry alone is insufficient and may give a false sense of security.

We use many case examples to illustrate the problems encountered in patients with OSA, including opioid-related events, hazards of supplemental oxygen, and others.

Why should you attend:

Are you aware of which patients have or might have OSA?

Are your patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA at risk of dying?

Have you already had adverse events in patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA?

Are you monitoring your at-risk patients correctly?

Does your staff fully understand the risks involved in patients with OSA?

Negligent Credentialing Strategies to Protect Your Health Care Entity
5/15/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: Hospitals, as corporate entities, have the ultimate responsibility for the quality of medical care provided in its facilities. This statement can be misleading, however, if one concludes that the hospital is liable for all acts of negligence or malpractice by a physician who practices at the hospital. In truth, the hospital must take reasonable steps:

To select a competent medical staff

To ensure that the individual physician on it staff performs only procedures for which he or she is qualified

To implement certain quality control measures to verify that only qualified practitioners remain on the staff and that quality care is provided in the institution

We will review the historical relationship between the physician and the hospital and, to see this relationship in the proper context, the roles each plays under the "corporate responsibility doctrine." We will also review the development of negligent credentialing and examine what actions should be taken to preclude liability for failure to properly credential practitioners.

Why should you attend: In a medical malpractice action, the plaintiff is looking for the defendant with deepest pocket for recovery. There is little question that hospitals have the deepest pocket. You should attend this program to learn how negligent credentialing develops and learn strategies to defend against it.

Areas Covered in the Session:

A brief history of peer review in hospitals

How the doctrine of corporate responsibility developed

Responsibility of the hospital for monitoring the care provided by physicians

What negligent credentialing is and how it developed

A brief review of state lawsuits involving negligent credentialing

Strategies that should be taken to preclude liability

Who Will Benefit:

Hospital Executives

Medical Staff Officers

Physicians who serve on peer review committees

Medical Staff

Support Staff
