Risk Management



Using Checklists to Prevent Patient Harm

Course Description

Nurses and technicians assist ophthalmologists in surgical procedures in many settings, including hospitals, surgery centers, and offices. They have a vital role to play to ensure that each procedure is performed safely. In this one hour webinar, actual malpractice cases where careful preparation and coordination did not occur will be presented to illustrate the risks to patient safety and the need for safe protocols.

Six reasons OMIC is the best choice for ophthalmologists in America.

#3. Best at defending claims.

An ophthalmologist pays nearly half a million dollars in premiums over the course of a career. Premium paid is directly related to your carrier’s claims experience. OMIC has a higher win rate taking tough cases to trial, full consent to settle (no hammer) clause, and access to the best experts. OMIC pays 25% less per claim than other carriers. As a result, OMIC’s base rates have consistently averaged approximately 15% lower than multispecialty carriers in the U.S.
