Lexington understands the diverse nature of healthcare risk and can provide a broad approach to clinical risk management and patient safety, whether the risk is a large healthcare organization, a small rural hospital or a long term care facility. Policyholders benefit from a wide selection of expert resources designed to address clinical exposures, successfully and proactively manage risk, and enhance patient safety.
Through our knowledgeable and experienced Lexington Healthcare risk management consultants, policyholders can receive Customized Risk and Patient Safety Consulting Services including comprehensive onsite consultations where evaluations are conducted on clinical and operational structures and processes. Follow-up recommendations detail risk reduction strategies designed to assist policyholders in reducing professional liability risk and improving patient safety while avoiding adverse outcomes.
Lexington offers a wide array of Best Practice Assessments (BPAs) focused on high risk clinical areas and other functions. Based upon guidelines from professional associations and various agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, BPAs provide a roadmap to improving patient care by benchmarking against published best practices. These recommendations can guide and strengthen patient care initiatives and help reduce areas of risk such as healthcare-associated infections.
