You walk into your patient’s room. There is a sick feeling that something just isn’t right. Do you dismiss this internal radar? OR… do you listen to your intuition and begin investigating? Recognizing early signs and symptoms of something going wrong is your best defense legally and your best response clinically to prevent a poor outcome for your patient. The better you understand how and why the body responds to “things not working right”, the earlier you can take the steps to intervene and possibly prevent the progression leading to an unfavorable outcome that may include death. Yes! Patients have died because of failure to rescue when the signs and symptoms were clear in the medical record.
This two-day intensive educational event will provide numerous clinical situations that represent all body systems that can and have led to poor outcomes because the signs and symptoms either were not recognized or were not treated appropriately. You will also learn from an expert in documentation how to chart when something goes wrong with your patient. Documentation is just as important as the care you provide and you will learn how to do just that as well.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing and passing the on-line post-test evaluation).
