What risk exposure do Ophthalmologist have?

Property Exposure
Is very light for fire and crime. Most Florida property items are best covered with the physicians and surgeons inland marine floater. The business interruption exposure can be minimized if the ophthalmologist has arranged for temporary facilities with another ophthalmologist.

Inland Marine Exposure
Is the physicians and surgeons floater items. This coverage will include items that the ophthalmologist may take off site to handle emergencies. It can also be extended to include all office furnishings. An ophthalmologist’s office will generally include sophisticated computer and medical equipment. All electrical wiring must be up to code and equipment properly maintained. A small fire, which produces smoke, can cause a lot of damage because of the need for sterile equipment. Additional exposures include accounts receivable and valuable papers and records (patients records and medical research books). It is vital that duplicates are kept of all records and programs and they be kept off site in Florida.

Crime Exposures
Is from employee dishonesty of both money and inventory. All ordering, billing and disbursement must be handled by separate individuals. Monitoring must be constant.

Premises Liability
Exposure is light but the customer areas should be neat with no obstructions and well lighted when people are traveling to and from the examination area. Overhead equipment should be moved before patients exit examination chairs. If surgery is performed, the area must be kept sterile at all times and carefully controlled. The patients’ area must be designed for patients who are visually impaired following the surgery. Escort procedures must be clear for all personnel.

Professional Exposure
Are a primary concern. All ophthalmologists and employees working directly with the Florida patient should be well trained, experienced, and properly licensed. The more varied procedures that the ophthalmologist performs, the more chance of professional loss. Needles and other equipment must be sterilized and sanitized to prevent the spread of blood-borne infectious diseases such as hepatitis, HIV and AIDS. On-site surgery must be closely monitored, with an experienced trained individual administering and monitoring the use of the anesthetic. Training and safety equipment should be in place to prevent exposure to radiation when performing X-rays. Florida automobile exposure is generally limited to hired and nonownership liability for employees running errands unless the ophthalmologist travels to client locations such as nursing homes, hospitals and surgery centers. In that case, the radius of the area driven as well as the age, record, and training of the driver should be checked. Overall, however, the exposure should be relatively light.

Workers Compensation
Exposure is from possible transmission of disease from a patient. Gloves and masks should be worn at all times when working around any bodily fluids.
