Pre-procedure Risk Assessment

Friday, January 19, 2007 at 3:35:02 PM

The Medical Staff Quality Committee has been reviewing on-going concerns about the adequacy of pre-procedure risk assessment. Audits focusing on perioperative deaths and/or major complications have shown that we have room for much improvement. The pre-procedure risk assessment form was developed to address 1) final estimated risk assessment and 2) risk reduction strategies. If the form is not used, then dictation should address the same issues. This will be a subject for further audits in 2007. Please contact Quality Management at 762-2432 for a copy of the form.
