Lecture Overview

What is a high-risk situation and how do you report it? Take a look at several legal case studies on how high-risk situations and incidents were handled (and mishandled), providing you a clear picture of the importance documentation plays in the safety for not only your patient, but your own.

This particular session , while engaging and informative, lacked in execution. The presenter often referred to slides which viewers could not see, leading to a little confusion as to which case was being discussed.

This lecture details many disturbing examples of poor or inadequate documentation, but provides key points to assist and prevent such issues arising int he future. A very timely reminder of the importance of the seemingly mundane 'report'.

The educator frequently referred to slides that were off screen and not always added to the screen which made it a bit disappointing.
