Enrollment is currently open for the next MLMIC-HANYS webinar, “The Hospitalist’s Role in Effective Coordination of Care,” on July 18. This 60-minute complimentary webinar will describe how a well-designed and implemented hospitalist program helps physicians and facilities provide optimum patient care and reduce potential liability risk.
Recent study shows an association between complete handover of anesthesia care of a patient from one anesthesiologist to another and adverse postoperative outcomes among patients undergoing major surgery.
During care transitions, it is essential to ensure that pertinent information is provided to the individual(s) assuming the care of the patient.
Effective communication is imperative in ensuring patient safety, especially during patient handoffs.
