Making Your Medical Practice Safe for Patients and Staff

Michael O'Connell of Marymount Hospital in Ohio discusses key steps your medical practice can take to ensure a safe environment for patients and staff.

Do you consider your medical practice "safe?" When is the last time you and your staff reviewed policies and procedures.

Everyone in a medical practice has a role in safety, according to Michael O'Connell, vice president of clinical and support services for Ohio-based Marymount Hospital, an affiliate of the Cleveland Clinic. O'Connell will present a two-part session entitled "30 Safe Practices in 30 Minutes" as part of this year's Medical Group Management Association Annual Conference on Monday, Oct. 7.

In this podcast, O'Connell previews his session, offering insight on where medical practices should begin analyzing the safety of their offices.
