Departemental Committees

​Mortality and Morbidity

A case, with an adverse outcome or death, is discussed and thoroughly reviewed.  The chief resident is asked to identify system-errors and propose a plan for improvement.  Some of those cases are selected for the Mortality and Morbidity conferences.  During the presentation, gaps in patient care are identified and the discussion focuses on how care could have been improved. It is held every 3 months.
