Statement on CMS report regarding Joan Rivers’ death and overall anesthesiology safety

American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) President J.P. Abenstein, M.D. released the following statement:

 

“First and foremost, the death of a patient is always a tragic event, and our hearts continue to be with the family of Ms. Joan Rivers.

 

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a 22-page report this week regarding the tragic death of Ms. Rivers. The report stated ‘Based on the review of medical records, documents, policies and procedures and interviews, it was determined that the facility failed to ensure that patient care services are provided in a manner that protects the health and safety of all patients.’

 

Each of the more than 100 million operations and procedures performed on Americans every year involves the administration of anesthesia. The goal of every member of ASA is to give each patient the highest quality and safest care possible. While our goal is to reduce the risk of surgery and anesthesia to zero, we are not there yet.

ASA® Applauds Introduction of Medicare Access to Rural Anesthesiology Act in House

The American Society of Anesthesiologists® (ASA) applauds Friday’s introduction of the bipartisan Medicare Access to Rural Anesthesiology Act by Rep. Lynn Jenkins (KS-05) and Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (MO-01).  Many rural areas of the country face challenges in recruiting and retaining physicians to serve rural patients.  This legislation, which is the companion to S. 1444 by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), reforms  Medicare’s rural incentive payment for all types of anesthesia providers and extends rural hospitals’ access to physician anesthesiologists.  Under this legislation, rural hospitals would expand access to physician anesthesiologist services and be able to more readily recruit and retain physician anesthesiologists who may want to serve their rural communities, providing greater access to physician care.
