Welcome to Diversion Specialists. I have addressed diversion events in my role as a specialist at a large academic medical center, and have assisted facilities across the country with their unique problems. What I learned very early on is that diversion in healthcare facilities happens everywhere. No one is immune. Because of the potential for significant patient harm, facilities must do everything they can to detect it quickly and respond appropriately. I am tremendously encouraged by the number of facilities that have recently contacted me to discuss their efforts to address this serious issue. I have heard from small community hospitals, large academic systems, long term care facilities, hospice/home health providers, surgery centers and doctor’s offices. I believe we can all learn from the experiences of our peers. I therefore invite you to share your stories, questions and comments.
