Constellation/MMIC Senior Risk and Patient Safety Consultant

Nurses are directly involved in most aspects of care in every health care setting, so understanding the top contributing factors to nursing-related claims is a great opportunity to minimize risk. In our analysis of Constellation professional liability claims asserted from 2010 to 2017, nurses were the most frequently cited primary clinician responsible for care at the time of the alleged injury. In this webinar, we’ll discuss our nursing claim data and offer practical solutions to help prevent injuries and claims in the clinic, hospital and senior living setting.
