Can Hospital Interactions Be A Cause of Connecticut Medical Malpractice?
Connecticut hospitals are big places with a lot of staff, physicians, nurses, and healthcare professionals required to care for patients with different needs. It is not uncommon for a healthcare provider to work alongside people whose name he or she does not know. But not knowing a colleague’s name can have adverse effects on patient care and could be a cause of Connecticut medical malpractice.
While in the operating room, seconds can be a matter of life and death. If colleagues do not know each other this could result in delays in administering medications, surgical tools, and other necessities that take place in the OR.
An Australian nurse anaesthetist started a trend where staff in operating rooms write their name and role on their caps. He said it created better channels of communication in periods of high intensity.
