Never Events

Never Events are clinical problems that should not occur to patients. As of October 2008; they will no longer be reimbursed by CMS (Medicare) or many other carriers and payers. Most significantly; facilities will still be responsible for rendering care to impacted patients and will carry the cost of that care. Infections acquired in facilities; pressure ulcers;  patient falls and patient elopement and wandering are highly visible Never Events because of cost; newsworthiness; and quality implications. These costs are larger than most realize to the extent they can change some profitable facilities into a deficit operation rapidly.
 
Investments in preventing Never Events can pay off multiple times by reducing the cost of non-reimbursable additional care; avoiding liability; and attracting more patients with a reputation for quality. AliMed can help you win the battle against Never Events with a wide selection of infection control products; fall management alarms and accessories; wander alarms; pressure-reducing cushions; and skin-protection products.
