How can Risk Managers help clinicians?
Clinical risk management focuses on mitigating risks and harm to patients and staff. It is important for clinicians to be aware of error prevention and recurring trends in treatment and patient care. Contact your risk manager when:
1. There is confusion about a living will or advanced directive
2. When there are recurring trends in patient incidents
3. When there is an equipment malfunction or failure while delivering patient care
4. If there is any adverse event or poor outcomes during patient treatment
Your risk manager can help by proper compliance with the protocol, implementing new strategies to mitigate organizational exposure, and execute containment plans when such events transpire.
