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

What is a Serious Adverse Events and how do I handle these Webinar By MentorHealth
5/15/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: When conducting clinical trials it is important to understand and be able to identify serious adverse events (SAE). These are events that are serious, likely related to the study drug, device, treatment or procedure, and increase risks to participants or others.

Serious adverse events are defined by the FDA as "Any adverse experience that places the patient, in the view of the initial reporter, at immediate risk of death from the adverse experience as it occurred, i.e., it does not include an adverse drug experience that, had it occurred in a more severe form, might have caused death." Although this definition seems clear, there are words within the definition itself that have to be understood in order to ensure compliance. Who is the initial reporter? What is an adverse experience? Is an adverse experience different or the same as an adverse drug experience? How do you know if a more severe form as occurred? Is death the SAE or is the cause of death the SAE?

This webinar will help sort out all these issues and get you to a better understanding of what needs to be reported to who.

Why should you attend: Regulations and guidance can be overwhelming and seem conflicting when it comes to handling serious adverse events, it is important to know when and what needs to be submitted, reviewed, and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) and what can be handled by the investigator as non-reporting of events that are considered reportable can lead to issues related to non-compliance.

Areas Covered in the Session:

ICH guidelines and Good Clinical Practice (GCP)

Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) guidance

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance

Potential effects on consent and the protocol
