Dental Medical Emergency – Managing a Situation
Be prepared for a dental medical emergency! If you’re familiar with the Boy Scouts, then you should know that is their motto – “Be Prepared”. The motto applies perfectly to the modern dental practice. More important, not many Boy Scout’s have been arraigned in court for a negligence trial or even worse as some dentists have experienced.
But how prepared are you? Almost every day in your dental practice are planned routines to help keep everything running. However, what if there on a particular day things turn out badly and a patient falls sick, has an adverse reaction, suffers a stroke, or cardiac arrest?
Are you and your staff ready to handle an emergency medical situation and do you even know where to start?
Most of the time the answer to the previous question is NO, and in addition to the life of the patient at risk, the practice could also face legal proceedings.
