Safety Management Steps Taken by Insured to Make Similar Occurrence Less Likely
In retrospect, it appears the parents of the child did not accurately report the amount of oral steroids which were given to the child in the weeks preceding the 4/10/07 office visit with the insured.As a result, this impacted the decision to treat the child on an outpatient basis as opposed to hospitalization.
