Providing an ongoing, comprehensive, and systematic approval to reducing the risk of exposure is the focus of the risk management plan. The activities included in risk management are identifying, investigating, analyzing, and evaluating risk, followed by selecting and implementing the most appropriate methods for correcting, reducing, managing, transferring, and/or eliminating them. This plan requires the cooperation from all departments, services, and patient care professionals. Policies, procedures and protocols will be provided to address exposure to events such as professional, business-related, general and motor vehicle liabilities, and workers’ compensation which may be created.
The primary responsibility of this risk management program is to identify, investigate, and manage injuries, accidents, and other potentially compensable events. This process will be directed by me, the risk manager, and the others I have assigned to participate in the various components of events that may occur with patients, staff, visitors, and organizational assets. To achieve quality care in a safe environment and to protect the organization’s resources, this risk management plan will influence, persuade and educate leaders within all
