7 steps to help ensure your patients stay safe
Coordinating care is key!
In Magellan’s* most recent patient safety survey, we asked inpatient and residential facilities and psychiatrists to report their practices in the areas of coordination/transition of care and medication management. You can check out the survey results here, but perhaps more importantly, ask yourself…
Am I taking these steps to promote patient safety?
Contact other treating providers and/or primary care physicians following the initial evaluation and at pertinent times during treatment (safety issues, initiation of or change in medication, adverse medication reactions, treatment plan changes, hospitalization and termination).
Help facilitate communication and coordination of care
By using the Clinician Communication Form on MagellanProvider.com, you can promote greater communication and coordination of care among treating providers.
- From the Forms tab, choose “Clinical Forms.”
- Select the link to the Clinician Communication Form (PDF).
If you have questions or concerns about patient safety measures, contact Fawn Kimura, LCSW, California director of quality, at (310) 726-7109, ext. 77109, or FYKimura@MagellanHealth.com.
