The operating room and anesthesia services are considered high risk because...

  • High severity/frequency of claims
  • Increased frequency of adverse events/incidents
  • Unstable patients
  • Reliance on complex technology
  • High stress area
  • Uncontrolled, unplanned, and high volume
  • Multiple hand-offs
  • Small margin for error
  • High level of skill/specialization required
  • Potential for injury is high
  • Severity is high with injury

As a risk manager, you need to know a little bit about every area in your facility.  When you need to know a lot about your operating room and anesthesia services, call us.
