On a sunny Thursday morning, June 25, 2015, President Obama strode into the Rose Garden and declared a victory for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by stating that the act was working exactly the way it was supposed to work. He further reinforced that ACA has enabled young Americans up to the age of 26 to remain on their parents' health plans. It disallows the insurance companies from denying coverage based on preexisting conditions. Above all, an expansion of Medicaid has also brought an additional 16 million Americans under health coverage in a span of less than 2 years...

BACKGROUND: Health care providers often experience traumatic events and adversity that can have negative emotional impacts on the profession and on patients. These impacts are typically multifaceted and can result from many different events, such as unanticipated outcomes, licensing board complaints, claims, and litigation. Because health care providers are exposed to diverse situations, they require adequate and timely support, imperative for provider resilience and patient safety. This study evaluated the success of an institution's second victim health care support program and best practices in responding to these traumatic experiences effectively...

Unintentional nurse-attended deliveries occur on most labor and delivery units. Some precipitous deliveries are unavoidable, but others, occurring after admission with the expectation that the woman's designated provider would attend the delivery are, for a variety of reasons, still attended only by nursing staff. This study was undertaken to establish a benchmark for unintentional nurse-attended deliveries. Fifty perinatal units were studied with respect to their statistics regarding unintentional nurse-attended deliveries...

INTRODUCTION: Health care organizations working to eliminate preventable harm and to improve patient safety must have robust programs to collect and to analyze data on adverse events in order to use the information to affect improvement. Such adverse event reporting systems are based on frontline personnel reporting issues that arise in the course of their daily work. Limitations in how existing software systems handle these reports mean that use of this potentially rich information is resource intensive and prone to variable results...

BACKGROUND: Ineffective communication among the health care team is a leading cause of errors in the patient care setting. Studies assessing training related to communication and teamwork in the clinical team are prevalent, however, teamwork training at the administrative level is lacking. This includes individuals in leadership positions such as health care risk managers. PURPOSE: The purpose was to determine the impact of an educational intervention on the knowledge and attitudes related to communication and teamwork in the health care risk management population...

Vicarious liability is a very real concern for hospitals and other health care entities. There are two forms of vicarious liability: respondeat superior (liability for an employee's actions) and agency (liability for nonemployees who appear to be the agent of the entity). Since an entity works through its employees, there is little that can be done, in most cases, to avoid respondeat superior liability. Entities need to be aware of the ways in which nonemployees can be perceived to be the entity's agent so that the appearance of agency can be prevented...

BACKGROUND: Health care stakeholders are concerned about the growing risk of protecting sensitive patient health information from breaches. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has identified cyber attacks as an emerging concern, and regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) have increased security requirements and are enforcing compliance through stiff financial penalties...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate if an intensive educational intervention in the use of a standardized venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk assessment tool (scorecard) improves physicians' identification and chemoprophylaxis of postpartum patients at risk for VTE. METHODS: After implementation of a VTE scorecard and prior to an intensive educational intervention, postpartum patients (n = 140) were evaluated to assess scorecard completion, risk factors, and chemoprophylaxis. A performance improvement campaign focusing on patient safety, VTE prevention, and scorecard utilization was then conducted...

Ambulatory and office-based surgery is expanding rapidly. While growth continues, there are lingering patient safety concerns. To this end, the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) created the Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI), which collected patient and procedural characteristics on 23,341,130 anesthetics from all health care settings from 2010 to 2014. Of these, 179,618 office and 4,627,379 ambulatory cases were isolated and compared. Our findings show that although both settings are often grouped together, there are statistically significant differences in patient demographics, procedure types, and reported adverse events...

Risk managers whose organizations self-insure their medical professional liabilities often find themselves dealing with their institution's third-party administrator (TPA), the independent entity that manages claims against the organization and its employees. By understanding better the purpose and operations of a TPA, risk managers can enhance their organizations' litigation outcomes while adding new tools to improve patient safety and quality of care. Viewing the TPA simply as an expense item to be reduced to its lowest possible level deprives the organization of a valuable resource in the form of high-quality data on the drivers of professional liability losses...

Industry insiders who handle litigation involving catastrophic injury cases have eagerly awaited the first rulings to address the impact, if any, of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), often referred to as Obamacare, on claims for future damages. Before the ACA, it was uncertain whether injured individuals would have health insurance to cover ever-growing health care costs in the future. Consequently, in most jurisdictions, the applicable rule of law has prevented the argument that future damages should be reduced because of the availability of health insurance...

Sepsis kills more people in the United States than breast cancer, heart attacks, and the next two leading diseases combined. It is the leading cause of readmissions and for treatment costs exceeding twice that of the next most expensive condition. Survivors frequently suffer amputations and postsepsis syndrome, spending years on treatment and medication to recover. One in 150 people will be directly affected by sepsis, compared to the 1 in 33 million chance that a US resident would contact Ebola. We now have federal funding and a structured framework to treat Ebola, yet nothing exists to address sepsis even though the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reported spending $20 billion in 2011 treating its symptoms for Medicare and Medicaid patients...

Risk managers often meet with health care workers who are emotionally traumatized following adverse events. We surveyed members of the American Society for Health care Risk Management (ASHRM) about their training, experience, competence, and comfort with providing emotional support to health care workers. Although risk managers reported feeling comfortable and competent in providing support, nearly all respondents prefer to receive additional training. Risk managers who were comfortable listening to and supporting health care workers were more likely to report prior training...
