This webinar will look at the challenges of front line care during a Crisis Standard of Care (CSOS) status and how to prepare for new risks that may come about.

Preparing for a Crisis Standard of Care Plan implementation includes assessing how providers and staff will be supported in their decision making during the most stressful times. This webinar will look at the challenges of front line care during a CSOS status, including reviewing how to prepare for new risks that may arise as resources become more scarce.

Objectives:

  • • Identify the key ethical issues arising during restrictions in care impacted by limited resources
  • • Recognize risk control efforts needed to address documentation challenges
  • • Develop a strategy to document facility status for future case defense
