Safety Management Steps Taken by Insured to Make Similar Occurrence Less Likely
Dr. Furia appropriately diagnosed child abuse in this case, at a time when the injury to the patient could have been avoided with appropriate action by the State. In accord with PIRRGA's recognition of the large problem that is unreported child abuse, and the large loss exposure attendant thereto, PIRRGA has refocussed its insureds on the criteria for reporting child abuse as established by the appropriate academic institutions by bringing this topic to discussion during monthly insured peer-review teleconferences.
