Peer Review and Quality Improvement in an Era of Health Reform "The Redding Medical Center Peer Review Disaster"
The learning objectives are:
- Why peer review is important.
- How it can be thwarted.
- What needs to be done to make it better.

Presentation Summary: The Disaster at the Redding Medical Center, Redding, California, 1997-2002 damaged 769 patients and resulted in a $500 million fine. The hospital was kicked out of the Medicare program and sold. The medical license of one physician was revoked. A second physician did not practice for several years and is on probation. The magnitude of the disaster was because peer review failed. Oversight by the State and Federal authorities and The Joint Commission also failed. Dr. Rogan explains how this happened and what lessons you can take away to protect your hospital and the patients in your community.
