ASCA NEWS: Avoid Adverse Events with ASCA’s March Webinar


Avoid Adverse Events with ASCA’s March Webinar

Although rare in ASCs, an adverse event can impact patients’ and physicians’ perceptions of the care an ASC provides, negatively affect a center’s quality measure performance and drive up the cost of patient care. “Managing an Adverse Event,” ASCA’s March 6 webinar, will offer tips on how best to handle such an event. Michelle George, RN, CASC, vice president of clinical services at Surgical Care Affiliates, will discuss how to conduct a root cause analysis of an adverse event and how to develop a performance plan of action that prevents a comparable event in the future.
