Product Description

Over 98,000 patients are unintentionally harmed each year - are you doing all you can to prevent it?

The epidemic level of fatal outcomes is proof that our healthcare industry is in dire need of help. Loss of limb, infection, patient suicide, medication errors, wrong site surgery - unfortunately, they are not as rare as we'd like to think.

Patients shouldn't have to wonder whether their next visit might hurt, rather than help them.

Don't miss your chance to learn about the top 10 events reported to the Joint Commission, and what you can do to prevent them from negatively affecting your practice.

Don't your patients deserve the best?

Join renowned speaker Dianne Ditmer, PhD, RN, CFN, DABFN, FACFE, SANE and she guides you through the danger zone, into safer and more effective patient care.

In just 60 minutes, Dr. Dianne Ditmer will open your eyes to:

  • How fatal or life-changing mistakes, known as sentinel events, have changed the landscape of healthcare since the onset of required reporting.
  • The Joint Commission's top 10 sentinel events that should concern you the most.
  • How the Patient's Bill of Rights drives your ethical and legal obligations to your patients.
