Ophthalmic Anesthesia Malpractice Claims

with Anne Menke, PhD, RN
August 18, 2020, 4:30pm PT/7:30pm ET
Recording Available August 19 - October 31, 2020
Nursing: This webinar is pending 1 Nurse Contact Hour

 

DescriptionOphthalmic surgery typically yields good outcomes and is well tolerated by the vast majority of patients. The safety of the various ocular surgery anesthesia options contributes to the excellent safety profile of ophthalmic surgery. However, severe injuries related to ocular anesthesia do occur, and these injuries can result in medical malpractice claims made against the ophthalmologist, ophthalmology practice, anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, or the surgical facility in which the surgery occurred. A better understanding of the frequency and types of anesthesia-related claims may help to guide safety efforts.

Education Objectives:

1. List the top 3 types of injury patients suffered after anesthesia for eye surgery.

2. Discuss risks to consider during a preoperative assessment.

3. Consider patient safety issues associated with office-based surgery.
