Risk Management

Fall Prevention

In an issue of the Ophthalmic Risk Management Digest devoted to falls, we examined the circumstances surrounding the falls, determined factors that increased their likelihood, and offered suggestions on ways to identify and assist those most at risk. Fall Prevention  summarizes the risk management recommendations. Please see that issue of the Digest for additional case studies, an analysis of the difference between professional liability and premises liability claims related to falls, and information on money paid to settle these claims: http://www.omic.com/2015-v25-n2/.
