FierceHealthcare: Anesthesiologist Joseph Loskove explains how Memorial Healthcare System’s six hospitals started using Crew Resource Management (CRM) to prevent errors in the OR and improve patient safety.
"One of my biggest fears is a human error and operating on the wrong person, or the right side instead of left side," Loskove said. "I feel better when I go to an OR, and know I have the right person and am about to operate on the correct side. That to me is very comforting. Professionally, I sleep better at night." Dr. Joseph Loskove is the Chief of Anesthesia for the Memorial Healthcare System, the third largest public health system in the nation. Dr. Loskove also serves as Regional Medical Director, Anesthesia Division, Sheridan.
