Recently, I attended the WOCN Mid-Atlantic Regional conference. There, a nurse attorney discussed strategies to limit liability and improve patient care. The Maryland Patient Safety Law requires that hospitals report all Level I events to the state Office of Health Care Quality (OHCQ). The penalties for failing to meet these requirements can include revocation of the hospital’s license or a fine of $500 per day.
