- Avoiding “Never” Events While Hospitalized
- Safeguard Your Hospital CareThe Empowered Healthcare Consumer – Navigating your Medical Bills and Insurance Coverage
I am a Community Educator for CampaignZero, a national organization, whose goal is to eliminate accidental medical events to hospitalized patients. This is done by not only showing everyone how to safeguard their care or that of a loved one with simple, easy to understand checklists but advice on other easy ways to create a safer environment in the hospital for the patient.
“Never” events are things that should never happen to hospitalized patients but about 1 in 3 patients are harmed, despite everyone’s best intentions. Infections, such as MRSA and CDiff, blood stream infections, falls, pneumonia, and medication mixups are but a few of the adverse negative issues that harm approximately 12 million hospitalized patients a year.
This power point presentation should be viewed by everyone since one has no way to know when they or someone they love might need to be placed in the hospital.
Fees: No charge.
