Time out before intravitreal injections

OMIC has received reports of “wrong” events associated with intravitreal injections. These include wrong condition, wrong dose, wrong drug, wrong eye, and wrong patient.

To ensure that the correct drug and dose are injected into the correct eye every time, the ophthalmologist needs to lead a time out before each injection. A time out provides the opportunity to confirm that the patient, medical record, and ophthalmologist are in agreement. Time out before intravitreal injections is a sample protocol.

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

#1. Consistent return of premium.

Publicly-traded insurance companies exist to make profits for shareholders while physician-owned carriers often return profits to their policyholders. Don’t underestimate this benefit; it can add up to tens of thousands of dollars over the course of your career. OMIC has one of the most generous dividend programs for ophthalmologists and has returned more than $20 Million to our members through dividends.
