Health care risk management comprises the clinical and administrative efforts to identify, monitor, assess, mitigate, and prevent potential or actual adverse events to patients, employees, or the health care organization. The goals of risk management are to provide good patient care, reduce the chance for error in patient care, improve the chance that treatment will result in the desired result, and increase the odds of a successful defense in the event of a lawsuit. OB/GYN hospitalists provide a safety net for management of obstetric emergencies, potentially mitigating 40% of cases of intrapartum hypoxia identified in a review of 189 closed malpractice claims.[1] OB/GYN hospitalists are well positioned to partner with risk managers to identify and assess risk and develop and implement risk management strategies. By taking a proactive approach to risk management, OB/GYN hospitalists can be highly effective in promoting a culture of quality improvement and safety.
