Safety Management Steps Taken by Insured to Make Similar Occurrence Less Likely
Heightened emphasis was put on the importance of participating in PIRRGA's monthly chart review program in order to ensure that Dr. Soler would be adequately prepared to catch just the type of mistakes made by other physicians (such as those made by Dr. Steve Rahman), the likes of which lead to this lawsuit. A re-tuned and refocused, acute attention to detail was stressed in PIRRGA's risk management efforts with Dr. Soler.
