Alan Horowitz Speaking at AMDA EDGE22 Virtual Symposium
AGG Healthcare of counsel Alan Horowitz is speaking on a panel discussing the ethical and legal aspects of medical error in PALTC at the Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (“AMDA”) EDGE22 Virtual Symposium on October 28, 2022, from 2:30-4 p.m. EDT.
A medical error may be defined as a commission or omission of an action with potentially adverse consequences for the patient. Medical errors occur commonly in PALTC and may result in distress and discomfort among staff and clinicians in addition to potentially causing harm to residents. This session will explore the types and frequency of medical errors in PALTC, how to respond when medical error is identified, and how to prevent subsequent errors. Alan and fellow panelists will also address questions and controversies around the legal and ethical aspects of disclosure of medical error, as well as the incorporation of apology in that disclosure.
The virtual symposium will be held from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. EDT and will cover controversial and cutting-edge issues facing practitioners throughout the PALTC continuum. Attendees will leave with practical takeaways they can apply to their practices.
