In this era of MRSA and H1N1 and non-reimbursement for Healthcare Associated Infections, infection control is a key area for all healthcare providers today. It is the subject of increased scrutiny by accrediting bodies and regulators, and can increase an organization's medical malpractice risk exposure. This Webinar provides a forum to discuss new Infection Control Regulations and how to perform a proactive risk assessment of this important patient safety area. Performing this assessment within the context of a Patient Safety Organization, offers healthcare clients the opportunity to participate in this essential patient safety and quality improvement effort without risk of losing protection of data confidentiality or fearing discovery in the case of potential litigation. Healthcare providers from hospitals, long term care, and ambulatory care can gain this protection by following certain conditions set forth in the Patient Safety Act.
"We are very pleased to offer this Webinar on a topic so timely and important to healthcare providers today. All providers are working to make their organizations safe for patients, staff and visitors; participating in this webinar will assist them in these efforts as well as helping them meet regulatory requirements. Working with Clarity PSO, also gives providers a level of Federal protections for privilege and confidentiality and allows them to conduct this assessment in a learning environment," stated Ellen Flynn, RN, MBA, JD, Executive Director of Clarity PSO.
