Date October 29, 2014

TopicPatient Satisfaction
Description

Patient Satisfaction has emerged as an important element of our daily practice. It is critical that we implement best practices in patient satisfaction in order to prevent lawsuits, improve the satisfaction of both the patient and the provider, and obtain the highest HCAHPS scores for CMS payments.  This activity provides a framework for practitioners to deliver consistent, compassionate care to patients by introducing a 10-step list.  This systematic approach organizes the patient encounter into three stages of care.  The speaker will use video examples of high-risk malpractice scenarios lacking good patient satisfaction skills followed by corrected versions used to demonstrate best practices.

PresentationRapid Fire: Is There a Doctor in the House?
Date October 27, 2014
Location ACEP Scientific Assembly
TopicLegal Medicine
Description

As emergency physicians, our training makes us particularly well-suited to respond to emergencies in public – on a plane, on the roadside and in more formal volunteer opportunities. What legal coverage do we have in these circumstances? Are you under a legal or ethical obligation to respond to a medical crisis outside of the ED? Myths about the Good Samaritan laws will be addressed, and legal variability by state will be discussed. The emphasis will be on circumstances in which a physician is called upon to assist unexpectedly.
