Work Product Protection for Patient Safety Information
Date/Time:
December 14, 2022 - 12 to 1 p.m.
Duration:
1 hour
Location:
Webinar
Speakers:
Charles Kelly, MS, partner, and Samantha Gross, MPH, associate, at Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP

Description:
Reporting medical errors is a simple but essential way that healthcare workers can improve patient safety, because identifying what went wrong helps prevent it from happening again. One barrier to reporting may be concern about any liability risk for clinicians or facilities. But did you know the law provides a safe space for providers to discuss medical errors?

Charles Kelly, MS, partner, and Samantha Gross, MPH, associate, at Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP, will walk you through two important pieces of legislation that protect healthcare workers: the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005, which ensures federal privilege and confidentiality of information about providers and patients involved in a safety event (“Patient Safety Work Product”), and Section 311 of the Medical Care Availability and Reduction of Error Act (MCARE), which exempts investigative materials and documents from discovery or admission as evidence in civil or administrative actions or proceedings.
