Handling the Disruptive or Dangerous Patient

Providing care that improves a patient’s quality of life leads to many very rewarding patient physician relationships. However, the unfortunate reality is that ophthalmologists and their staff sometimes need to deal with very angry and sometimes violent patients.

See the sample Policy and Procedure for Disruptive or Dangerous Patient below to educate and protect staff and others from patients who behave in a disruptive or threatening manner.

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

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 a 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 has consistently maintained lower base rates than multispecialty carriers in the U.S.
