Beyond the Bedside: Risk Management in Nursing

risk managementIn this week’s Beyond the Bedside, we are going to focus on the role nurses play in the area of risk management. Risk management is an area that nurses can specialize in. They have clinical skills to understand medical issues that may arise, assessment skills, and also communication skills that allow them to speak with physicians, healthcare professionals, hospital staff members, and patients who might be involved in an incident or injury.

In an effort to minimize potential losses, healthcare facilities hire healthcare risk management professionals to monitor and manage risks and liabilities. Risk managers work to:

  • Ensure patient and staff safety
  • Respond to claims of clinical malpractice
  • Address patient complaints
  • Comply with federal and state regulations
