The annual Ohio Health Care Association convention will be held May 2 – 5 at the Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. AssuredPartners NL and Risk Management Solutions will each have a booth on the expo floor, and Risk Management Solutions will present a session at the conference, focusing on planning and managing the appropriate use of antibiotics in long term care communities. If you work in the senior living industry, join Risk Management Solutions on May 5 for this valuable presentation:
What’s Happening with Antibiotic Use in Long Term Care Communities?
Description: Antibiotics comprise 40% of all prescriptions written for residential care and nursing home residents. While it is true that this classification of drug is the most important tool physicians have to fight bacterial disease, the overuse is increasing the development of drug-resistant germs, increasing the number of hospitalizations, the cost of care, and the number of related deaths. The entire clinical team needs to know how to plan and manage the appropriate use. The education demonstrates the use of the QAPI process for system development and/or making problem-solving revisions.
Be sure to stop by the expo hall and meet the AssuredPartners NL and Risk Management Solutions teams. You’ll find AssuredPartners NL representatives at Booth 200 and Risk Management Solutions representatives at Booth 202.
