Risk management is important in any healthcare setting, but the more complex the patient population, the more challenges this poses. With long-term care (LTC) facilities housing people who have severe physical and/or cognitive impairments, multiple comorbidities, and on numerous medications, risks abound. Some of these risks are relatively easy to identify, such as the risk of fractures in a person with osteoporosis or of pressure ulcers in residents who are bedridden, whereas other risks may not become apparent until a patient experiences an unusual adverse effect. Read more about this topic in the February issue of Annals of Long-Term Care, online now! And don’t forget to take our online poll: Is your long-term care facility working toward implementing more stringent risk mitigation strategies? Look for results in the March issue of the journal. As always, we appreciate your feedback!
