What We Have Here Is: Failure to Communicate

Issues surrounding communication are associated with nearly all adverse events in healthcare. This presentation provides a claims-based discussion of adverse events that have arisen from communication issues in healthcare and strategies that could be used to prevent similar occurrences. LHA Trust Funds Sr. Director of Quality and Patient Safety Stacie Jenkins and Liability Claims Manager Mike Walsh will also highlight best practices and tools that should be incorporated into organizational processes to mitigate these common healthcare errors.
