The Illinois Appellate Court recently reversed a trial court ruling in Daley vs. Ingalls Memorial Hospital, which ordered Ingalls Memorial Hospital to produce documents collected within its Patient Safety Evaluation System (PSES) and reported to a certified Patient Safety Organization (PSO). The appellate court ruled that Ingalls Memorial Hospital had appropriate PSES policy documentation, and the full privilege of Patient Safety Work Product under the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act (PSQIA) applied, which meant the documents were protected and did not have to be given to the plaintiff.
The MHA Keystone Center PSO is hosting a webinar Oct. 18 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. EDT to better understand the Daley vs. Ingalls Memorial Hospital case. Featured speaker, Michael Callahan, JD, partner, Katten Munchin Rosenman, LLP, will review the PSES, provide recommendations for designing a PSES to maximize privilege protections under the PSQIA, and discuss how to prepare detailed affidavits.
Registration is free and open to all MHA Keystone Center PSO members. The target audience for this webinar includes, but is not limited to, quality and performance improvement personnel, risk managers, in-house and outside regulatory and defense attorneys and medical staff leadership.
