MLMIC is committed to the education of healthcare professionals as an effective means of improving patient care and, ultimately, reducing the number and severity of claims. MLMIC’s Risk Management Department has developed comprehensive programs to help minimize the liability exposure of MLMIC-insured hospitals and long term care facilities, and its physician, surgeon, and dentist policyholders. These programs are available at no cost to MLMIC policyholders.
An informed and highly motivated staff is a group’s best resource for reducing the potential for patient injury and subsequent financial loss. Educating staff members to assist them in providing high quality care in a safe environment is a major element of MLMIC’s risk management program. Another advantage of staff education is that when employees are comfortable with the loss control concept, they will more readily notify management of patient incidents.
Risk Management Consultants can provide your practice with presentations on a variety of educational topics at no cost.
These presentations may include:
- Office Safety and Risk Management
- Telephone Etiquette
- Medication Safety
