Question: In the year 2017 The United States experienced a chain of weather-related and natural disaster events. All of these disasters have necessitated that hospitals be able to react in an efficient and effective manner to mass casualty events and to have as few medical errors as possible. You have recently been hired as a hospital risk manager. The Risk Manager is responsible for the facility’s risk management activities, which include assisting with the management of general and professional liability claims against the facility and collaborating with the hospital legal counsel. This new job requires that you ready the hospital for almost any situation presented including disasters, medical errors, tort liability, and promoting a systems analysis for promoting and improving patient safety.
The hospital CEO would like you to construct a risk management policy analysis for the hospital that covers all these areas. This will be your opportunity to show everyone they hired the right person for the job. You will communicate your plan in a PowerPoint presentation to the hospital board and selected stakeholders.
