Each year ECRI identifies ten potential patient safety concerns to support organizations in their efforts to identify and respond to threats to patient safety proactively. ECRI and KAMMCO encourage facilities and organizations to use this list to help formulate their risk mitigation strategies.
In a health care setting, patients sometimes decide to self-discharge or leave against medical advice (AMA). When a patient requests to leave AMA, you should take some crucial steps before their departure.
Question: The Kansas Board of Healing Arts is now requiring one hour of “Category III” continuing education on the topic of opioids. Does KAMMCO offer any education that would help me meet this criterion?
Question: Does the Senate Substitute for House Bill No. 2279 require APRNs to purchase an individual insurance policy, or will they still be allowed to be covered under an employer’s additional insured coverage limit?
KAMMCO is excited to announce that our insured members can again attend our annual Loss Prevention Program live and in-person this year. In addition, KAMMCO will present the program via webinar and via an online course.
